It is difficult to know if this was orchestrated between RFU and Saracens (who have been reported to have received six figure compensation), or whether it was a U turn by AF.
For what it worth, as a Sarries supporter, I think RFU may have got the wrong man. The strengths of Sarries game come from their forwards and defence coaches, Sanderson and particularly Gustard.
Boshing it up the centre (not the best way to use Saracens very talented squad imo) is, mostly definitely, an Andy Farrell trait.
I think that England would have been better served with Gustard and a top class attack coach, someone like Ashton.
But England's loss is Saracens gain - and that most definitely includes CH.
CH is already a firm favourite with Saracens supporters, for exactly the same reasons that he was when he was at Sale
