I really hope that there are some serious props on their way in the summer, because our scrum is still a complete embarrassment and we'll go nowhere without sorting that out. Whilst we started off well today, it ended up like the Exeter game as we fell away and got totally overpowered by a better side. Minus the ball carrying prowess of Courtney and Tei we were feeding off scraps and unlikely to cause Sarries many problems. Bringing Myler on was like raising the white flag, sadly he offers very little in terms of invention and imagination these days.

A ridiculous comment about Myler, with Harry totally overrun in the first half. In the 2nd half we could have had the All Blacks back division and it would have made no difference because we barely saw the ball. Forwards win games and backs decide by how much.

We need some Props or a Forwards coach who will work very hard on technique (not an ex-Leicester 9 to 5 man like we currently have). Despite 2 massively improved games, we still have the same falability in the forwards.
