Wonderful piece of writing and a very fitting tribute to a great leader and a great man, DG - thank you.

Ive got something in my eye now...

You capture the man very well. No doubt about his being one of the most influential people who was ever at Sarries. No sportsperson is ever greater than their club, but some define their club's greatness.

I enjoyed the slight dig at the England set-up, and the nonsense about Sam Burgess and Brad. If things had been better handled, England would have not been the first home side ever to be KO'd in the pool stages of the RWC.

We are fortunate to have followed the journey.

Lovely piece of writing and whilst I don't expect we'll see his like again at Saracens, others will take up the mantle and leave their own mark. Legend of a player and man.

Superb resume of a stellar career. Fitting that him and Robshaw going at the same time, two incredible servants for their clubs who unfairly took the brunt of the RWC 2015 fiasco.
