Was this a psychological blow landed before these sides set about seeking promotion to the Premiership? Simply a chance for both teams to blow off the cobwebs having not played a competitive match for so long? Or a demonstration that perhaps the Premiership may want to think about expanding to 14 teams after all? Maybe the most significant thing about Ealing Trailfinders’ entertaining win over Saracens was that it was the only match taking place in England on Saturday.
Such are the times that we are living. As a result it put this match into the spotlight and given the frantic finish it did not disappoint as a spectacle.
