Saracens hit ‘Lions selection’ mode to run in 50m freak try against Ealing

When Saracens hit British and Irish Lions mode, there’s very little any team can do to stop them, and we include the All Blacks and the Springboks in that statement.

Here we include a try that is part of a ‘Lions mode’ that means all player play as if their Lions chance depend on it.

Saracens won the game 48-20 at the Stone X Stadium in round 7 of the Greene King IPA Championship, and this magnificent try was maybe the pick of the bunch.

Meanwhile, City Index today announced the start of the City Index & Saracens ‘Trading Places’ competition. The contest will see Richard Barrington, Mike Rhodes, Deborah Fleming and 7 other Saracens Rugby Club players go head-to-head in a competition designed to test each player’s trading skills.

The competitors will be trading places and stepping into the shoes of the retail traders that use City Index’s industry leading trading platforms every day, and just like City Index users, each Saracens player brings a unique approach and experience level to the competition. While several of the ten competitors are new to trading, players like Jackson Wray have some previous trading experience. In pure Saracens style the competition between the players will be real, but each will be using a demo account with a starting balance of £10,000 in virtual funds. To level the playing field each player will have access to all of City Index’s educational tools, research, and customer support throughout the duration of the competition.

The starting 10 for the competition will be:

Jackson Wray
Aled Davies
Richard Barrington
Mike Rhodes
Vincent Koch
Alex Lewington
Deborah Fleming
Lotte Clapp
Sydney Gregson
Emma Swords

Giles Watts, SVP & Regional Business Director for the UK & EU at City Index, commented, “We’re excited that we’re able to work with the Saracens to create a competition that will allow these players to showcase their skills outside of rugby but also showcase the opportunities trading can offer while further educating the competitors and those following the competition on how to develop effective trading skills and strategies. We look forward to seeing how the players leverage our leading trading solutions and educational tools to develop a winning strategy.”
