Saracens’ Matt Stevens makes return from drugs ban at Woollams

England international returns in second-string victory

OLD ALBANIANS’ home, Woollams, played host to Matt Stevens’ return to rugby after a two-year drugs ban.

The England international prop played 56 minutes for new club Saracens’ second string in their 39-29 win over Wasps.

Stevens was banned back in 2009 after testing positive for cocaine whilst on the books at Bath, a ban which came to an end on January 19 this year.

Sarries ran in six tries during Monday night’s victory with two familiar faces at Woollams amongst the scorers.

Former OAs prop James Ellershaw got the ball rolling for Saracens with flanker Jamie Bache wrapping up the scoring for the home side.
