IMHO The game plan for Sarries has to be something along the lines of;
1) Play in the right areas of the field, there is no point box kicking it 15yrds from within our 22. We need good tactical kicking. Play them deep, but don't forget to exploit the dink over the top to keep them honest.
2) Chase and Attack them with ferocity and aggression, particularly the breakdown, the pack has to work really hard here, I would be telling them, I will make changes early on in the 2nd, so work really hard whilst your on...
We have seen before when sarries have got frustrated by us with this, and whilst they haven't gone to pot, they have started to give away penalties.
3) Kick the chances, early on, hopefully there isn't much wind, and we have a good day from the tee.

For me, I think this leads to having Myler as the starting 10.
We need the control, and we need to squeeze, as I don't think its going to be possible to have an open running game as sarries are too organised.

maybe Piers can do all this just as well or better than Myler, but I know that Myler can do this well. but it starts with the pack (IMHO)
