I can assure you that the figure of 6m for this game is bar talk conjured up from nowhere and is downright silly. It has been commercially very good for the club but not a lottery win.

Would we have done better at KP? Nobody can say but personally I don't think it would have been any different. Sarries are so strong with their ranks of internationals that they just trample all over home advantage, be it here or anywhere else.

I think the experience will have done the whole squad a power of good, something to lift them up a bit for the season ahead. Many of our younger players won't have been on this sort of adventure before, it is truly character building stuff, and that can only be a good thing.
