I always thought Myler was at his best when he played behind a dominant pack. As the dominance of our pack slipped Myler compensated by playing deeper. This resulted in kicking for territory or a shuffled pass to 12.

I just worry that unless he has changed his approach both options will see us loose ground and possession to Saracens. I cant see that ending well on Sunday.

I would think the best way to beat them is too keep the ball and make possession work. We need some big runners hitting the line - Api always makes yards, Brookes could be destructive if he could take the ball at pace, Ribbans is difficult to stop.
When they have the ball we need to show real aggression and dog in defence. Some brutal stuff wouldn't go amiss. Knock them backwards and run over them.

Need to be on top of our game to win this one.
