"The day was described as 'like seeing children on Christmas morning' by Sarries CEO Edward Griffiths, and I can think of no better way of describing the atmosphere that surrounded Allianz Park on Sunday. [Don't be too gushing, though]

"It may still look like a building site in places, but it was home, something Saracens had craved for so long.

"As cliché as it may be, there really was a feeling that there was 'something special' about the place."

Daily Telegraph: "Mortgages cheapest since height of crisis"

Link to web site

"Reduced borrowing rates and lower house prices have combined to leave the average household with more of their after-tax income than at any time since 2002.

"Mortgage payments absorbed 28pc of a new borrower’s disposable income in the final quarter of last year, according to analysis out today from Halifax, which is part of Britain’s biggest lender Lloyds Banking Group. At its peak in the third quarter of 2007, the proportion was 48pc.

"... However, the cheap deals remain out of reach for many would-be homeowners due to the banks’ larger deposit requirements."
