A breif mention for Huge as well.

JP is also on this weeks eggchasers podcast and comes across as a really decent bloke and a huge rugby fan. Worth a listen.

I think sometimes it is underestimated how important it is for a captain to build a rapport with the refs and be respected.

It's why I don't think Farrell makes a good captain. Farrell is fine as someone who can encourage others by performing well but I don't think he's got what Brad Barritt has.


Brad going off vs Racing Metro was a big blow.

Sarries going into the future will need to keep trying to build future leaders. A team is about balance not just how skilled they are. Good discipline is an underrated skill.

A lot of leaders gone now - Wigglesworth, Kruis, Goode, Barritt.

Opportunities are there though.

For a captain, my vote would go to Jamie George

England and Saracens - me too.

I generally prefer a forward as captain just in Brad Barritt, Sarries had a back with the mentality and physical presence of a forward.

No wonder Brad was so good at filling in as flanker in scrums when down to 14 men. I honestly can't remember too many lost scrums in those circumstances.

None of these guys try to get it wrong, and most of them are nice guys.

The interviewer asks about Wayne Barnes getting all but two Prem finals. One of the other two was Sarries against Saints - neither the ref nor the TMO covered themselves in glory.

Id agree about Jamie although part of me thinks Jackson (despite not handling things too well at the Stoop).

I also see Tom Woolstencroft emerging as a future leader - hes done a good job when hes skippered the side this season.
