Well done lads one or two err 'rash decisions' (Mr Taylor?) But overall we march on from last season. OK Sarries have players in Nippon but so do we. Great and my Hoddles hunch should be up a tad WoooHooo!

Brilliant result. Well done lads. Whatever else weíve got an away win at Sarries and this should do confidence a lot of good. Just be great to see some of the injured lads coming back. I do worry about some of them in terms of the future particularly Harry who seems to have been out for ages.

Looking at the other results, I see Glaws squeaked a win at sale, with a certain Mr Ford Robinson ex of this parish starting for them.

Couldnt understand sale playign most of their starters in the cup but there you go

Tigers losing at Wuss suggests a long season in the basement to me

Taylors decision was a blot but thought he had a good game overall. And sarries were about 2 away not 10 so realistically the ref could have bailed his decision to tap and go out

Managed to watch the end of the game while in Houston airport. Amazed not to get arrested for shouting! What a start. As others have said, short sighted of Scotland not to take Hutchinson. Happy they dug deep there at the end and had the ability to hold on to the win.

Well bloody hell!!!.. didnít fancy us particularly after team announced, thought Teiís absence would be crucial. Great win fellaís hope they made lots of celebratory noise in the changing room and have a few beers, well deserved

As one of many who predicted a heavy defeat I am so delighted to have been proved wrong !

I predicted a heavy loss and so glad to be wrong. I had concerns regarding Tonks & Coles in the back row but thought they both had a decent game.

After watching the first 20 minutes then unable to get the score until 30 minutes ago ; amazed but delighted
Fantastic result

Rugby heaven. An unexpected Saints win away v Sarries. Not just an expected England win v Australia but a dominant showing

I think Taylor was hard done by on the quick tap, the whole point was they werenít back ten so he should have either made yards or had another pen another ten forwards. Only works if the ref is awake though! In general I think there is a little bit of overeagerness against his old team but like the enthusiasm.

Can you blame them? Who wants to watch their team lose at home? *

I really didn't see that coming great result well done to all concerned. Some interesting results in the other matches could be another season of everyone beating everyone else. Great start for Wuss and Irish as well as Saints.

That's absolutely shocking and shows once again that big attendances at Wembley etc fuelled by freebies does zilch when it comes to getting paying customers through the gate at home. I wonder if our travelling support was reduced in number by pessimists such as myself writing off this fixture. Oh we of little faith! Lesson learnt here in Abington.

I have take a decision not to visit the Allianz for the foreseeable. Nice people but I won't put my hand in my pocket to help Mr Wray

I guess the number of supporters travelling away is affected if the match is televised live. Since BT started covering Premiership Rugby my perception is that there have been fewer Saints fans at away matches. No doubt the SSC would have a good idea of the numbers too. To a lesser extent the tv coverage also impacts on numbers of home supporters turning up at FG but probably impacts more on "casual" attenders than STH's.

With BT generally covering 3 matches every weekend there aren't many occasions in a season when a Saints fixture is not televised live. No doubt the clubs receive more income from tv than gate receipts but that doesn't compensate for a lack of atmosphere in the ground (IMO).

Anyway we seem to have drifted off-topic a bit so well done the lads at Allianz on Saturday !

Don't know and can't find out but I doubt it. Might be a different rule in European matches.
