Lutui eager for Saracens showdown

Tongan powerhouse Aleki Lutui admits he can hardly wait to go head-to-head with table topping Saracens when they arrive for Guinness Premiership action at Sixways Stadium on Friday (kick-off 8pm).

Saracens have yet to taste defeat so far this term in the top-flight and Lutui is full of praise for the manner in which the London club have soared to a lofty league perch.

However, the rock solid hooker admits he can hardly wait for the test himself against the league’s top side and believes Warriors must just concentrate on their own performance to gain a big result.

“Saracens look sharp at the moment as they are unbeaten, but for us it is a big challenge for this week and I am excited by this,” said Lutui.

“This time we will look to stop their unbeaten run – the result could be big for us.

“We have to look at ourselves now. We realise that every week it will be a tough challenge, there are no easy games in Guinness Premiership so this is no different.

“If you look at the table there is not much between teams. We have to concentrate on our game and not elsewhere, if we focus on our preparation and make sure we get it right we can perform.

“We know Saracens are in good form and have not lost, but we must not think about that, just focus on ourselves and what we can do.”

Tickets for Friday’s big Guinness Premiership clash with league leaders Saracens are available now – as Worcester Warriors look to upset the only unbeaten record in the top-flight.

The home clash at Sixways Stadium (kick-off 8pm) is set to be an action-filled affair and one not to be missed as Mike Ruddock’s men look to take a big league scalp.
