As preparations continue for the new Aviva Premiership season, which gets underway on September 1, double European champions Saracens have released a video on their Twitter feed of the goings on at the club's pre-season camp in Bermuda.

It involves a rugby ball, diving boards, and a pool, and it’s brilliant!

The move was started off so well as the ball cleanly transitioned from each player, but then came the hospital pass – predictably ruining the two-on-one opportunity.

Bad form from the Saracens players, and so close to the start of the season too.

Twitter reacted brilliantly, with @SaracensWomen tweeting: “Looks tough out there lads 😜 Don't worry the women are holding the fort!”

Ex-England and Sales winger Mark Cueto was also quick to get in on the act, ribbing Saracens scrum-half Richard Wigglesworth by blaming him for the dropped ball.

“@Mark-Cueto - I hope it wasn't @rwiggy9 that let the team down 😜”

Good to see Saracens enjoying Bermuda, especially as the coming season is going to be tough.

Saracens will play Northampton Saints in the first match in the traditional double-header season opener at Twickenham, and Harlequins will be playing newly promoted London Irish following the conclusion of Sarries–Northampton.

Exeter, last season’s champions, will face a tricky task of facing Gloucester at Kingsholm on Friday September 1.

Head Coach Rob Baxter believes that last season’s triumph, seven seasons after being promoted from the Championship, is meaningless for the coming season.

"It doesn't matter who won the Premiership last season, the league table right now says zero points and we have got to start collecting them again," The Exeter director of Rugby told the Telegraph.

Highly regarded coach Ali Hepher takes over as head coach of the West Country side for the coming season, following Baxters promotion.

Watch their swimming pool antics below.

"In a lot of ways, Gloucester is a really good starting fixture for us because the players will look at it and know it's a big challenge and know we have to start very well.

"Gloucester will be buoyed by some new signings and a new head coach so it is a very interesting start point for us."

The season is shaping up to be the biggest yet for the Aviva Premiership.
