Re: Borthwick

The one thing you really would expect that Borthwick could sort out is the lineout, which is still unreliable at best. If he can't then we simply have the wrong players.

Re: The Saracens Way

Stage one: Spend an incredible amount of money and rack up huge losses. Stage two: Break rules to give yourself unfair competitive advantage. Stage three: Continue to rack up huge losses. So essentially, you too can achieve some great things if you are happy to lose a hell of a lot of money. Solid b...

Re: Bath vs. Tigers - Sat 25 Jan 15:00

I think we need to be cautious about highly we rate the current crop of youngsters. Hardwick, Costelow, Reffell, Steward and Lewis clearly all have potential, but I haven't seen any of them put in that big performance that announces them as being Premiership starters. I'd like to see them all conti...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

McCall is the Director of Rugby, not the water carrier. Given Sarries have admitted systematic abuse of the salary cap IMHO it would be astonishing if he was not aware, even if he did not have final authority. McCall strikes me as pretty smart, certainly smart enough to count. Board meetings are mi...

would it be a home semi or a "home" semi?
"The semi finals will be played at home venues". I assume that means home home.

Re: Borthwick

Have Bakewell's departure and Deacon's promotion not also coincided with Taufua and Lavanini becoming regulars? Either way, things have definitely been better since then and the players need to continue to focus on the "now" and work hard to improve. Borthwick may or may not be a huge success, he is...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

Sick to the back teeth of the deployment of the word "mistake" to somehow justify Sarries deliberate and persistent cheating. Mistakes by definition are neither deliberate nor persistent. Sarries only mistake was to believe they could not get caught. mistake /mɪˈsteɪk/ noun an act or judgement that...

Re: Pau vs Tigers - Sat 18 Jan 20

Other than the fact that Toulon are playing Scarletsv :smt046 I stand by my comment. If Toulon beat Edinburgh in this years competition, we will have a semi in Toulon. The fact that they will not play Edinburgh is completely irrelevant, I never said they would. :smt003 I was simply pointing out tha...

Re: Saracens are relegated!

I have a lot of respect for McCall, he has done a stunningly good job to produce the quality teams at Saracens over the past 8 or 9 years and he is a pretty intelligent guy but no one will ever convince me that, as he looked around the training ground at his squad, he didn’t question how the manage...

Re: Pau vs Tigers - Sat 18 Jan 20

Totally agree but I think we would get them in Toulon before Marseille If we beat Castres and Toulon beat Edinburgh, we will have a semi in Toulon.

Re: Saracens are relegated!

Mark McCall seems to be conveniently distancing himself from this scandal, whilst neither confirming nor denying that he had knowledge of it happening. Time to play your hand, Mr McCall. You were either in on it (in which case, get ready for the fall) or you weren't (in which case, you've been well...

Re: What Now For Our Season?

Apologies, it's Toulon away or Scarlets home if we reach the semis. For some reason I thought Toulon were playing Edinburgh.

What does Sam Simmons have to do to get back into the England squad???? :smt017 :smt017 :smt017
I suspect, get a lot bigger. At least while Jones is Head Coach.
