The champions were without Owen Farrell, whose back injury could also keep him out of Sunday’s game at Exeter but Alex Lozowski proved an excellent stand-in on his Saracens debut with 20 points.
“I would have been on the bench if Owen had been fit. I know my role in the squad. I scored 20 points today, Owen could come back in and score 22 next week. That is the way it is but it is great to be with Faz every day picking things up,” said Lozowski, who was once part of the Chelsea academy.
“This is the champion team in Europe and everyone is chasing them. For me, I am extremely grateful to be welcomed into the group. Now it is time for me to earn the respect of my team mates.
“They have done it all and they want to do it again – that is the underlying thing for this group. I just need to make sure I am doing my job to help the boys achieve that.”
Lozowski, 23, moved from Wasps in the summer against the wishes of his father Rob who played 263 games for the club. “It didn’t work out for me at Wasps the way my dad would have hoped but he was here today watching, supporting Sarries for the first time in his life!” he said.
