The superb fightback was the biggest comeback the Tyrrells Premier 15s has ever seen!
Inspired by Alex Austerberry’s side’s achievement, Saracens.com takes a look at three thrilling Saracens Men turnarounds from last season.
Harlequins 20-25 Saracens Men
Round 6 2018/19 Gallagher Premiership
Billy Vunipola's try helped unbeaten Premiership champions Saracens come from behind to win 25-20 at Harlequins in a fiery London derby.The sides traded penalties before Danny Care intercepted Ben Spencer's pass to race clear and score Quins' first try. Joe Marchant then leapt spectacularly to catch and dot down a miscued Marcus Smith penalty to put Quins 20-12 up. But the boot of Owen Farrell and Vunipola's try in the corner was enough to maintain Sarries' flawless record.
Leinster 10-20 Saracens Men

Farrell kicked the conversion as the Londoners scored 20 unanswered points and put in a dominant second-half performance
