Dominic Day is anticipating a show of attacking intent when Cardiff Blues come to town in the latest round of European Champions Cup action. 

The Welsh lock, who has three caps for his national side, moved to the London club after starting his career at Scarlets. 

Day admits he is expecting the visitors, who won the European Challenge Cup last season, to come at the Gallagher Premiership Rugby champions.

The two sides will do battle in Pool 3 with Saracens top of the group while Cardiff are down in third.

“Cardiff are going to be difficult to play, they have a nice attacking style of rugby which is always good to watch so it’s something we have to be really wary of,” Day told the official Saracens website.

“They have some big ball carriers in Nick Williams and Samu Manoa and a couple of others. We’ll do our bit and prepare as well as we can to get a good result.

“A lot of the regions have taken some stick for under performing. Cardiff Blues won the Challenge Cup last year which is awesome and Scarlets won the league the year before so things are definitely on the up.

“Wales have won nine or 10 games on the bounce now which is good going into a World Cup year so it’s exciting.”

Day, 33, has featured regularly for Saracens in the last six weeks and is enjoying his time in the team now that he's injury free.

He commended the side for the way they have fought for victories in recent close games with Leicester Tigers and Sale Sharks, which saw the club extend their 100 per cent start to the season.

“It’s been awesome,” Day said.  “I’ve probably enjoyed my rugby more now as I’ve been injury free and I’ve been able to get out there, train every day, play on the weekends and I’m just really enjoying it.

“It always helps when you’re winning! We’ve had some really close games and to come through them and win them, sometimes in the last few minutes, has been a really awesome experience and we’ve really grown as a group.”
