Saracens defend refund offer to Bath fans if Gavin Henson scores on Sunday and say critics should 'lighten up'
Saracens chief executive Edward Griffiths says people criticising the club's offer to give Bath supporters a full refund if Gavin Henson scores on Sunday, need to "lighten up".
It is the second time Sarries have made a money-back proposal to travelling supporters after Gloucester fans were promised a full refund last weekend for predicting the right result.
The latest tempter has a little extra spice however as Henson, who used to play for Sarries, has yet to score in either of Bath's opening two victories of the season.
Griffiths however brushed off suggestions the offer was meant as a jibe at Henson. “As a sport we have to be innovative and Gavin Henson seems like the obvious player to market this game," he told the Western Mail.
“As a former player of ours we know how good he is and if he does score we will gladly refund the tickets - everyone will be a winner.
“We are certainly not picking on him. If anything it will inspire him to try harder to score.
“And if he does, good luck to him. People criticising us need to lighten up and not be so po-faced.
“Our game against Bath is up against four Premier League football matches on Sunday so we have to do everything we can to get people interested.”
