Marcelo Bosch played his part as Saracens extended their lead at the top of the Aviva Premiership table by beating Northampton Saints 28-24 on Sunday. Bosch scored one of three tries, but this massive penalty from about 58m out impressed the most.
It’s not the biggest ever seen – Francois Steyn of the Sharks did the same thing twice at the weekend – but the casual strike from Bosch and the way it sailed through was something to behold.
Argentine Bosch took over from Farrell when the long distance kick opportunity arose. The England flyhalf didn’t emerge after half time, instead ending up on crutches with a foot injury.
“Owen Farrell will resume training towards the end of this week,” said a Saracens statement today.
“The Saracens and England fly-half sustained a foot injury during the match against Northampton Saints on Sunday, but scans have indicated no serious damage.”
