All this talk of playing territory and kicking a lot..... NZ and super rugby sides led the way, ok they kick when needed especially when receiving from another kick. But the ball is to be used to score tries, in the modern game. Not to be booted away to their back 3 to kick back and then we face a 50/50 high ball back where we kicked it. Thatís all old hat and luckily we have evolved, with the game, this year.

Keep playing how we are playing. Iím not scared of Saracens attack or defence (albeit theyíre the best). For the first time in years theyíll be worried about our ability to score tries. Donít give that away by playing some supposedly low risk strategy.

We have our new identity. Stick with it whoever starts at 10. Incidentally Stephen has ran at the line more in the last 2 appearances than the last 2 years, which is great.
