Stevens not thinking about double just yet

A domestic and European double would be some way for Matt Stevens to finish off his Saracens career but the British & Irish Lions prop is refusing to look beyond the task at hand.

Stevens is nearing the end of his fourth and final year with Saracens before moving back to South Africa to join the Sharks.

Already he has one Premiership winners’ medal from his time at the club but that could become two when Saracens take on Northampton Saints on May 31.

But firstly, Saracens contest their first ever European Cup final against Toulon on Saturday, and Stevens is giving it 100 per cent of his attention.

He told the Telegraph: “How can we presume to look ahead when we have such a big, big game in front of us against Toulon?

"There is no way that we will be counting chickens about anything.

"There is the talent within this group to win things, for sure, but we will have to put everything out there on Saturday.

"Toulon beat us last season and are a fantastic side. We know that it will be intense, hard-fought and passionate.

"These are special times and we know have to show what we have to offer.

"This could be the moment in the club’s history and it is up to us to do the jersey proud.”
