The chron has this on it,

Both Jamie and Rob Horne in the team.
Is interesting to note that I cant see a Sarries player in it?

Collectively, sarries are one hell of a unit. Individually, however, they are not stellar and many have been underperforming this year as individuals

Simplified for the sake of argument, Sarries are a team of 9.5 out of 10s across the board and the dream team has picked the 10 out of 10s? The lack of internationals is also noticeable - maybe not catching the eye in the AP because they've been away with their countries?

Disagree with that entirely, Mako, Brits, Itoje, Billy, Farrell, Williams are all 10/10s.

The problem this year has been injury and player fatigue after the lions.

Yep. The Lions drew against the best side in the world in New Zealand.

Sarries have 6 Test Lions plus Billy V who would have been bar injury. So these are some of the very best players in the world.

Unsurprisingly looking jaded after a Lions tour. But form is temporary and class is permanent as they say!

I can't stand Liam Williams. He is undoubtedly a very talented player but ever since I've watched him for Wales or his club sides he has always led with shoulders, elbows to the head or knees into the backs of players as they are diving over the try line. Just watch how many cheap shots he takes diving late onto an opposing player after they have scored a try.
I believe he cost Wales a victory or at least a draw against New Zealand or Australia when he illegally tackled his opponent near the touchline. The referee awarded a penalty try. The try levelled the scores the resulting conversion under the posts won the game. I hoped he'd learn from that. But from what I've seen since, he hasn't. Pity because as I've stated earlier I believe he is very talented.

Saint Mulc, I thought you were writing about Dallaglio.

Thanks Barend my mistake it was the incident against South Africa. I got it wrong twice as it happens. The try would still have left them trailing by one point, not levelled the scores as I stated. SA would have been left with an extremely difficult conversion attempt to deny Wales a very rare victory versus Southern hemisphere opposition. If he concentrated on a legal tackle he may well have prevented a try being scored at all instead of gifting the game to SA.
Eif, no I wasn't confused with Lol. He certainly isn't my cup of tea but I never recall him costing my national team victory with his act of stupidity. My selective memory perhaps?

Oh come on Eif, at least try for a more recent example of an England player being worse, Dayglo hasn't played since you last made a positive comment about Saints!
