Saracens one of the most enjoyable teams to watch

Gloucester and Scotland lock Jim Hamilton

A lot of people say Saracens are boring but I actually think they are one of the most enjoyable teams to watch in the league.

They are extremely efficient, and anything that wins Premiership titles has to be worthwhile in my book.

I’d love to play a boring game and lift that Premiership trophy.

Saracens are extremely hard to score against – they have only conceded seven tries in nine league games and that tells its own story.

People talk about them playing a boring brand of rugby, but it’s just so efficient, and that’s something we’re working hard to bring into our game at Gloucester.

We take on Saracens at Vicarage Road on Sunday, and it will be a good test for us, because it’s the first time we’ve come up against a team that play this regimented style.

We want to be up there with the best teams in the league, but to match the best you have to beat the best – so we need to go to places like Saracens and get results.

We’ve made a lot of progress in a very short time under Nigel Davies this year.

Gloucester finished ninth last season – the club’s lowest league position in the Premiership – but now we are third in the league and feeling good about things.

The most pleasing aspect is that we’re nowhere near our best yet.

This is a new chapter for Gloucester, but the set-up should stay similar to how it is now for some time to come.

All the top teams are settled, they retain the same core for a long time, and that’s what we intend to do now.
