Re: Sarries vs Wasps (Incl. Team News)

Despite them missing Farrell and Goode, I think we suffered more from absences. Guy and Sam have been outstanding this season and when we lost Taylor too that was pretty disruptive.

Carley specifically was his usual lousy self but not the reason we lost. Possibly helped the scoreline look more dramatic than it needed. My problem is more how Sarries are reffed generally. Their Wolfpack defence they are so proud of relies so frequently on being offside and if refs aren't willing to penalize this then surely other teams need to play them at their own game, or at least flag it to officials before the match.

That said Sarries sheer power, determination, consistency and coordination is something to behold. Itoje, whilst developing into quite a dirty player, is also a freakish specimen that is almost unplayable at times. I've never seen anyone relieve the ball in the way he did from Rieder. I would say "rip" but that suggests a contest! Amazing!
