Saracens’ pool-side training drill is genius, but they couldn’t quite pull it off
“OH FOR GOD’S SAKE.”
Saracens Rugby club has shared the moment an ambitious passing drill ended up being a bit of a fail at their training camp in Bermuda.
The English Premiership team lined up alongside a pool in the sunshine, and the players took it in turn to pass the ball to the person next to them before jumping into the water.
The pre-season passing drill looked seriously impressive – that is, until one unidentified player had a bit of a mare and missed catching the ball, much to the audible annoyance of his teammates.

The club tweeted out the clip with the appropriate caption “when you bomb a 2-on-1”, and it’s getting a lot of replays on Twitter, partly because of the hilarious reaction you can hear in the background.
This video MUST be watched with the sound on. The exasperation at the misplaced pass is just magnificent https://t.co/PMOtkSmxj0— Andrew McKenna (@talkMacca) August 9, 2017

Even if the training session didn’t quite go to plan, many people on Twitter still thought the clip was pretty cool. It’s definitely a different way to train anyway…

And Saracens player Alex Goode enjoyed taking part, if this tweet is anything to go by…
