Saracens🏉 Handed Record Home Defeat👊 by Clermont

  |   Rugby

Clermont took out their frustration over the chaotic postponement of their Champions Cup clash at Allianz Park by inflicting a record 46-14 defeat on holders Saracens.

Kick-off was delayed by 26 hours to Monday due to adverse weather conditions, resulting in a furious statement from the French giants who claimed their fans had been treated "as if they were toys" in a "completely absurd" process.

Also tucked away in the lengthy attack on Champions Cup organisers was a vow to take out their frustration on Saracens and this they did in sensational fashion led by their marauding Fijian wing Alivereti Raka.

Raka wrapped-up his hat-trick inside the opening 25 minutes to capitalise on a feeble defensive display from a team that missed a total of 37 tackles to crash to a sixth successive defeat.

It was their greatest losing margin in the competition and also marked their highest number of points conceded as they surrendered first place in Pool Two.
