Bath have won seven of their eight games since the Premiership resumed but need another mighty effort today at Allianz Park to book their place in the semi-finals Saracens v Bath live stream: How to watch from anywhereBath have drawn the short straw in the final round of the Gallagher Premiership regular season. Wasps, Sale and Bristol – their rivals for a play-off place – will be expected to see off opposition with different agendas and little to play for beyond professional pride.Related content: Sale v Worcester postponed until WednesdayIn contrast, Bath today face a Saracens side looking to mark the end of an era in appropriate, winning fashion (kick-off 3pm). It is Sarries’ last Premiership match before they drop down to the RFU Championship and begin another journey with newer and younger players aboard.On top of which, two giants of the Premiership take their leave. Richard Wigglesworth will make his 250th and final Saracens appearance ten years after joining from Sale Sharks. The England scrum-half, who is not hanging up his boots just yet, bows out as a Saracen with five Premiership titles and three Champions Cups to his name.Journey’s end: Sarries scrum-half Richard Wigglesworth feeds a scrum against Racing (Getty Images)Club captain Brad Barritt has been at Sarries even longer. Sadly, injury denies this immense and courageous figure a 263rd and final appearance for the club.Wigglesworth, 37, said: “Brad as captain has basically lifted every trophy we have ever won. I have never seen a guy physically do what he does on a weekly basis.”With Barritt, Alex Goode and Duncan Taylor all missing, Sarries’ midfield has an unfamiliar look. Sam Crean and Callum Hunter-Hill come into the pack, which is otherwise unchanged from the one beaten agonisingly by Racing 92 in the Champions Cup semi-final.Bath know anything other than victory at Allianz Park, where they have never won, will mean their wait for a last-four place continues. They last reached the semi-finals in 2015, going on to lose the final to Sarries.Three figures: fly-half Rhys Priestland makes his 100th appearance in the Blue, Black and White (Getty Images)Fly-half Rhys Priestland plays his 100th game for them in a side showing two changes from the XV that achieved a remarkable comeback win over Gloucester in the previous round. Josh McNally replaces Elliott Stooke at lock and Mike Williams comes in for Tom Ellis in the back row. Will Spencer is the only change on the bench.Bath have won all four away matches since the Premiership resumed in mid-August and must believe they have what it takes to do the job, regardless of what Saracens throw at them.“Emotions will be running high for them,” said prop Lewis Boyce. “They are one hell of a side but from what we have here at Bath Rugby and how we have been training, I think we can go there and do what we need to do. The boys are flying and it is our quarter-final.”The reverse fixture last November took place when Saracens were just starting their mission to eat into a 35-point deduction for breaching salary cap regulations. As we know, events overtook them. They won 25-12 at The Rec that day, all the points coming from the boots of Owen Farrell and Priestland apart from a Sean Maitland try.You can remind yourself of how the game unfolded by watching the highlights here.Saracens: Elliot Daly; Alex Lewington, Dom Morris, Juan Pablo Socino, Sean Maitland; Manu Vunipola, Richard Wigglesworth; Sam Crean, Jamie George, Vincent Koch, Maro Itoje, Tim Swinson, Callum Hunter-Hill, Jackson Wray, Billy Vunipola.Replacements: 16 Tom Woolstencroft, 17 Robin Hislop, 18 Alec Clarey, 19 Joel Kpoku, 20 Janco Venter, 21 Aled Davies, 22 Harry Sloan, 23 Rotimi Segun.Bath: Anthony Watson; Semesa Rokoduguni, Jonathan Joseph, Josh Matavesi, Ruaridh McConnochie; Rhys Priestland, Ben Spencer; Beno Obano, Tom Dunn, Will Stuart, Josh McNally, Charlie Ewels (capt), Mike Williams, Sam Underhill, Taulupe Faletau.Replacements: 16 Jack Walker, 17 Lewis Boyce, 18 Christian Judge, 19 Will Spencer, 20 Miles Reid, 21 Will Chudley, 22 Cameron Redpath, 23 Joe Cokanasiga.Here’s how to watch a reliable live stream of Saracens v Bath wherever you are… How to watch Saracens v Bath from outside your countryIf you’re abroad but still want to watch your local Premiership coverage, like Saracens v Bath, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.VPNs allow you to get around any geo-blocking by changing your IP address so you appear in a different location and can watch the same legal Premiership live stream you would at home.Our friends at TechRadar have tested hundreds of VPN and recommend ExpressVPN, which is easy to use, has strong security features and allows you to watch on several devices at once, including smart TVs and phones, iPads, tablets, PCs and Macs.Plus, ExpressVPN comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Brazil midfielder Willian completed his move to Chelsea as speculation intensified he could be joined at Stamford Bridge by his former team-mate Samuel Eto’o. The twice-capped 25-year-old was finally granted a work permit on Wednesday to complete his move from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala after agreeing a five-year contract with the Blues. And with their attempts to sign Wayne Rooney from Manchester United seemingly floundering, Chelsea were reported to be on the verge of signing another Anzhi player in the form of Cameroon striker Eto’o. On Thursday morning pictures emerged of the 32-year-old, who has been widely linked with a move to Stamford Bridge over the last few days, apparently arriving at London St Pancras station on Wednesday night. Chelsea are keen to increase their attacking options, while Anzhi have been offloading players after owner Suleyman Kerimov decided to reduce his spending at the Dagestan club. Former Barcelona star Eto’o flourished under Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho’s guidance when the pair were at Inter Milan together. And Willian, who was poised to join Tottenham before Chelsea made their move, admitted the lure of working with the Portuguese was a big factor in his decision to join the west London club. “I’m very happy to be here, it’s been a dream of mine to come and play here,” Willian said on Chelsea’s official website. “Chelsea are one of the best clubs in the world and now I’m going to play for one of the best managers in the world. I’m very happy and looking forward to it.” Willian, who will wear the number 22 shirt, looked set to join Spurs last week only for Chelsea to hijack the deal and outbid their Barclays Premier League rivals. He had passed a medical at Spurs before Mourinho swooped to add him to Chelsea’s attacking options. Persistently linked with a move to England, he spent six years at Shakhtar Donetsk where he made his name as a creative midfielder player before joining Anzhi in January. He began his career in his homeland with Corinthians before moving to Europe with Shakhtar Donetsk in 2007. He made over 100 appearances for the Ukrainian club before moving to Anzhi. Friday night’s Super Cup match against Bayern Munich in Prague has arrived too soon for his Chelsea debut, so he must wait until the Premier League showdown with Everton on September 14 for his bow. His arrival has fuelled speculation that unsettled Spaniard Juan Mata could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge with Arsenal a possible destination. Press Association
Charles Woodson’s tenure as a broadcaster with ESPN is over, the 1997 Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL great announced Thursday. The 42-year-old Woodson, who spent 18 seasons in the NFL, shared a message on Instagram as he thanked ESPN and his on-air “Sunday NFL Countdown” colleagues — Sam Ponder, Randy Moss, Matt Hasselbeck and Rex Ryan. Woodson shared the set with them for the past three years after retiring from the NFL in 2015. “You have given me the opportunity immediately out of the NFL to work in television. It’s been a wonderful three years. It’s been a blast. I’ve learned a lot, had a lot of fun, gained some great friends,” Woodson said, in part. View this post on Instagram Many thanks to @espn @espnnfl it was a good run!!A post shared by Charles Woodson (@charleswoodson) on Feb 7, 2019 at 7:53am PSTWhile Woodson didn’t reveal what’s next, the former All-Pro defensive back alluded to his next venture as he said, “For everybody out there who may have tuned in and watched me every week. I’ll see you next season somewhere. Stay tuned.”Woodson has been selected to the 2018 class of the College Football Hall of Fame and joined Michigan’s Hall of Honor in 2017 over the past three years. He was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection in his career with the Raiders and Packers.
AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersAs a more diversified scorer, as a defender. And, perhaps most critically, as a leader.“You can see it when you’re around him every day,” Walton said. “You see how the guys react to him. … That comes from being a leader. They look at him and they get confidence from him when he’s playing well. When we need a bucket, they call his number out there to get him the ball.”No, Ingram is not the kind of player who will scream at his teammates or motivate vocally. But Coach Luke Walton says Ingram does not need to become a Russell Westbrook or Draymond Green type of leader for the rest of the Lakers to follow him.“You can definitely be a quiet alpha,” Walton said.The comparison who came to mind for the Lakers coach was his point guard in college at Arizona: Jason Gardner . The Lakers star forward smirked and shook his head before bending over in laughter.“Brandon Ingram’s new movie,” Kyle Kuzma said, “‘Slender Man,’ coming soon.”Kuzma’s shaky cell phone video, shared on social media, then panned to the promotional poster for an upcoming horror film, then back to Ingram and Lonzo Ball, as the young Lakers triumvirate visited a movie theater in Oklahoma City earlier this week.While Ingram’s frame remains lean, and a constant source of amusement for his teammates, the second-year small forward has really filled out this season. “He was the only guy on our team who didn’t talk,” Walton said. “He was the leader of our group there.”Ingram has often spoken up after bad losses, taking accountability for the Lakers’ performances. After the Lakers met as a team amid a nine-game losing streak, no player spoke out as forcefully about their need to listen to each other – and for the coaches to listen to the players – than Ingram.“I’ve seen him get loud at times,” Walton said, “and I think when he does speak up, guys really do listen because it doesn’t happen often.”Ingram is one of several Lakers dealing with injuries. He is listed as questionable to play Friday against Indiana after tweaking the sprained left ankle that he first suffered in Saturday’s overtime victory in Dallas.LET THE ACHILLES HEALThe first encouraging sign after Kentavious Caldwell-Pope left the Lakers’ loss in Oklahoma City came at halftime, when the veteran guard returned to the court to put up shots and test his sore Achilles.That, at least, indicated he had not torn the tendon.“I don’t think you can shoot on a torn Achilles,” Walton said.Well, unless you are …“Unless you are Kobe Bryant,” Walton said, “then you can make some free throws.”Despite that initial positive sign, the team’s starting shooting guard was ruled out for Friday’s game against the Pacers. He was limping in the locker room late Wednesday and received treatment from team trainers on Thursday.Caldwell-Pope will be held out along with starting point guard Lonzo Ball, who will miss his third consecutive game with a sore left knee. The Lakers are 0-8 in games without Ball this season.Ingram is questionable against the Pacers, as is Kyle Kuzma, who suffered a sprained joint in his left hand.Caldwell-Pope, who averages 13.7 points, suffered the injury when he and Westbrook vied for a loose ball, with Westbrook rolling onto Caldwell-Pope’s lower leg.“Hopefully it’s short term,” Caldwell-Pope said after the Lakers’ 24-point loss.IN A HAYESThe Lakers plan to sign G-League star Nigel Hayes to a 10-day contract this week, bringing in a player who has spent time in the Lakers locker room – just not with the Lakers.When Hayes and the Wisconsin Badgers appeared at Staples Center in the West Regional of the NCAA Tournament in 2015, Hayes made waves on social media by celebrating the discovery that he had been assigned Kobe Bryant’s locker.There will be no chance of him getting his old locker back, however. Ingram famously occupies Bryant’s old station in the locker room.A 6-foot-8 forward, Hayes appeared in 30 games this season with the Westchester Knicks, averaging 14.9 points, 6.6 rebounds and more than two 3-poitners per game.
