pretty much John. I mean there may be the odd point of debate but not many. To be honest it's a pretty good group of individuals but they have been widely in suck poor form that it's still hard to see a team.

I'd like to see Simmons get a decent run out (20 mins at least)

Strong Sarries team, given the invitationals. Is it possible to combine hope with foreboding?

One of the two games I expect us to lose

We are clearly operating to a different set of parameters to Sarries. That’s their 6N’s squad and I would take everyone of their starters (except Clarke of course) over ours, with only debates about TV and Toomua IMO.

I wouldn't - but I'd take their team and coaches.

If & it's a big IF we are anywhere near them after 60mins I expect us to go close! Their bench isn't as good as ours & fresh legs on the hour may just nudge it our way!
Looking forward to a big w/e of rugby starting tonight in Marseille!

Big advantage for Sarries in the pack.

Team is what it is. Whether that is our best team I don't know but its the one O'Connor has stuck with through thin and thin this season.

Hopeful but not too optimistic.

Hell of a good Sarries team.

Still Wells and Hamilton don't start.

Don't like to see the fly half as captain (they have enough to do running the game) plus Tigers should be captained by a forward. BUT, MT might just be the man for the job.

Sarries by at least 15 points, particularly with a new (weak?) ref they will influence at home.

Our bench looks stronger than there's.

Don't start blaming the ref even before the game's started, that way lies paranoia.


Points win matches: tries win hearts and minds.

Oh we do that before and after every game, the alternative is too horrible to contemplate, the other team was better
