Game plan executed perfectly. They may have been tenth but they were able to put together a game plan and execute it, or us

Saints are 'wounded'

FT: Harlequins 50-21 Northampton

Northampton are a wounded animal at the moment and you have to go for the jugular. We did that early on and got our rewards.

Wounded? I'd say flippin' dead. Quins made it look easy, no effortless - because it was, EASY! More pathetic play.

And if Una posts one more snap of Fodes in dinner suit at some poncy function instead of doing his day job...

..sack him!

This is what I donít get. Week after week we start slowly, let the oppos build an unassailable lead and then start to fight back.

Are we thick or just plain incompetent?

Why can we not realise that by starting slowly we effectively concede defeat after 30 mins??

How about blitzing the oppos for 30 mins then seeing how the land lays??

It beggars belief that we have so many international players who are just not at the races. That includes Dylan who, based on his saints performances, should not be England captain!

Heaven forbid a player has a life away from the training pitch.

I seem to remember that Lewis Hamilton failed to show up at the Trafalgar Square F1 extravaganza a couple of days before the British Grand Prix on the basis that the event would distract him from the race at the weekend. I also seem to remember that he blitzed the race.

Should rugby players have a life away from the training pitch......yes, of course, but not at the expense of the highly paid day job.

Just pathetic. Week after week of wasted money. Pathetic. A win every so often, reassuring. A loss for eleven games? Sack 'em!

I went to HQ with my pal who is a Quins supporter. He agreed that Quins are far from being a good team, but we made them look superb.

Sarries players are good blokes off the the pitch..
Get them on the pitch and they are all WINNERS!
All driven too achieve the same goal..
You don't achieve a Culture without the players already being natural winners mate.

Itoje - lovelly humble guy off the pitch.
On the pitch he has got too be one of the most annoying, win at all costs, do whatever it takes players in the Prem.

And that is what makes him great!
