Ben/Max & Bristol

Both Ben and Max are performing exceptionally well at Bristol, with MoM performances. Apparently they are enjoying the club culture and the city. I am sure that Bristol would be very interested in retaining their services. There is a risk that one or both could be tempted to leave and join Bristol despite their contracts with Sarries.

Ca sera sera - they have to do what's right for them.

+1. They are putting in outstanding performances and are immensely talented young players. I look forward to seeing them perform like this for Sarries in a couple of seasons. But if it doesn't happen, I wish them well and will follow their careers with interest.

Earl was a clear MOTM for me last night.

No doubt we will be beset by trolls on this but it is both hugely amusing and frustrating for me that 2 players (almost fresh out of our academy) are now the BT Sport Challenge Cup final highlights backdrop for the “face” of Bristol. They also performed wonderfully in the final. Nevertheless, brilliant Bris I am genuinely happy for you all.

One of the things that is a bit odd about this situation is everyone wants loyalty from their players and yet quite a few Bristol supporters seem to think after a couple of months with Bristol Earl and Malins would just walk away from Saracens.

Tbh I'd be gutted to lose either but equally there's no point keeping anyone who doesn't want to be at the club. The good news is Earl has already been very vocal about returning and both are players that could have a big impact on how we play and evolve in the future and they know how much they are rated by the coaches.

At the end of the day, Saracens are still the loanees principal employer as that is who their main contracts are with. I assume Bristol et al have a contract with Saracens or a direct contract with the player and a covering contract with Saracens.

That said if any player no longer wanted to return, I wonder how the club would act. Contract v Players wish. Hope we never find out and all players want to return.

Ashy wanted out when still under contract scrappy. We let him go.

Forgot about that. Let's hope the scenario doesn't repeat itself.

Agreed - Ashy was a different situation.
