Saracens looked a million miles from a team in crisis last weekend as their 44-3 win over Ospreys revived their hopes of qualifying from Pool 5 of the Heineken Cup.

Defeat away to Racing 92 in the first round was a blow, but Mark McCall's side steadied the ship with a six-try victory over the Welsh outfit at Allianz Park.

Next Saturday they come to Thomond Park for the first of the back-to-back meetings between the sides, but this weekend they travel to The Rec to face Bath in the Premiership.

Fresh from their bright display in Limerick, Racing 92 host Bordeaux Begles in Top 14 action tomorrow, where they will aim to continue their recent improvements.

And after defeats to Munster and Racing, Ospreys return to PRO14 action when they host Cheetahs at The Gnoll. With just one win from their eight games this season Ospreys badly need a win to kickstart their campaign.
