International Round Up | More success for Sarries stars
It was another successful weekend for the Saracens contingent who were representing their countries.
Maro Itoje made his 50th England cap in their 32-15 win over Australia. Owen Farrell also ran out for his 100th test cap, his 94th for England with six for the British and Irish Lions, and he kicked 17 points for the home side.
Jamie George and Max Malins were also influential as Eddie Jones’ side made it eight consecutive wins over the Wallabies.
Nick Tompkins started for Wales and came up against Eroni Mawi who was in action for Fiji, and it was Tompkins who was celebrating after a 38-23 win at the Principality Stadium.
Vincent Koch came on for South Africa in the first half at BT Murrayfield and his huge power helped the Springboks to a 30-15 triumph in Edinburgh.
Marco Riccioni unfortunately sustained a knee injury in Italy’s loss against Argentina and he will return to the club this week for assessments.
Janco Venter started for Namibia in their comprehensive 60-24 win over Kenya in Stellenbosch.
Poppy Cleall got her 50th cap for England as they rampaged to a 51-12 win against Canada at the Twickenham Stoop.
She was joined by fellow Saracens Hannah Botterman, Marlie Packer, Zoe Harrison, Holly Aitchison and Sarah McKenna who are having a terrific Autumn series. Alex Ellis came up against a whole host of club mates as she was on Canada duty.
Wales were triumphant against South Africa, and Georgia Evans, Donna Rose and Kat Evans all played in the 29-19 win.
Carly Waters was again in action for USA, who suffered defeat to Ireland.
The Autumn Internationals draw to a close this weekend, with more Saracens set to feature all around the globe.
