England and Saracens skipper Owen Farrell said the club is determined to finish the season on a high despite them facing automatic relegation at the end of the campaign.

Mark McCall's men will be demoted to tier two Championship next season following a series of salary cap breaches and were docked 35 points along with a £5.36m. Despite 10 wins from 15 games, Saracens are at the bottom of the table but their recent win over Harlequins showed they are far from over in the ongoing campaign.

Farrell missed the previous game against Bristol Bears with an injury but went on to make his 200th appearance for the club during the game at Allianz Park last weekend where he kicked 18 points.

“Everyone says the Leinster game is the only competitive rugby that we are going to play – that it’s the only game that really means anything – but that’s not the case,” said Farrell.

“We have got to enjoy ourselves. We want to enjoy ourselves by getting stuck in together.

“There are a few lads that signed deals to finish this season off and we want to make sure we do the end of this season properly.

“We want to enjoy playing together and the only way that you do that is by giving your all. We are working hard to make sure we give 100 per cent.”

Saracens will also be in contention to retain the European Champions Cup title in the 2019/20 season as they face Leinster in the quarter-finals at Aviva Stadium in Dublin on 19th September.
