Saints are a dire rugby team. Burrell/Pisi both are 13s with zero kicking or handling ability. Our wingers get no ball because the only option the centres have is run into man and recycle with no offload. Absolutely no pressure on rucks, Wasps had free ball all night. Then we were sleeping for the whole first half, defense had no cohesion, didn't get near some tackles. Not to mention the shocking line out. Dreadful. The scoreline is flattering.

Sarries not being clinical at all. Two potential try scoring opportunities squandered.

Sarries starting slow but coming back into it and starting to turn up the pressure. Bath looking better with Cook bossing the show at 9.

19 made, 7 missed. Shocking.

Saracens always have a high missed tackle count as they commit so hard. Gustard never seemed to mind as the missed tackles still caused an issue and the next man cleared up.

True Londontiger but Sarries have been very sloppy so far.

McCall needs to give a good team talk at half time.

I wouldn't worry bs, Sarries will win at least 1 trophy this season.

Bath look much better with Cook at sh, he is turning into a good player.

Can't understand why Bell isn't kicking. Would play to our strengths to have his howitzer of a boot off the tee leaving Burns to concentrate on play making.

As long as we beat Falcons, I like this spread of results so far. If Worcester could have a stormer vs Exeter (but with LCD and Hill having a great return off the bench) that would be greatly appreciated

These are soft soft penalties against both teams, I'd much prefer if the ref would let some of them go.

Credit to our attacking play though.

That display shows why Exeter were happy to let Bateman go, could not throw straight, could not hook and could not tackle.

Yes but I think he looks better at 10. Based on what I've seen of him this season anyway. At 12 he doesn't quite have the carrying game but at 10 he's a good footballer and tends to make the right decisions.

Saw the last twenty of the Tigers game. We looked a lot better once Thacker came on. He offered a real threat ball in hand, his throwing in sharp and the scrum looked just as solid.

Love how dangerous our backs look when the game opens up, tore through Glaws out wide and Morgan very much deserved that yellow for the cynical pull. He put off the winning try but it was the right call considering how lethargic our big lads looked ball in hand. Credit to Crane who had some nice touches including the final turnover which was mistakenly credited to Barrow.

Bateman first game back, His lineouts were on par to an off day for Youngs.

Thacker had Logo and Ayerza which help scrum wise, but him and Balmain might have been found out.

Crane had a great game, looked more relaxed not forcoing things.

Tait rolled back the years, Betham was everywhere so was Veainu.

Bell had a poor game by his standards, bar key kick at the end. Burns looked good in everywhere but kicking.

Mauger done wonders to our attacking play out wide.

Maybe Welly, Balmain has been pretty solid when propping at tighthead though. He's come on well this season and we've started to see him bring a good carrying game as well. It's was only the first game back for Bateman but he needed to hit the ground running with Youngs well established and the club considering hooker options for next season.

Balmain is very good IMO, but i he isn't experienced enough to scrum with Thacker yet.

Thacker big plus is he is a brilliant striker regardless.

Thacker is super talented. If only he was a little bigger, though perhaps that would negate some of his strengths. I still think he'd make a brilliant Brussouw-esque flanker.

Balmain has been good this season when he hasn't had to play loosie. Great engine. Great carrier.

On comeallwithin, someone did deep stats analysis for all the centres in the AP and Betham has incredible stats (as does Daly, unsurprisingly)

Saints are in the pooper.  Now we will learn what Jimmy is made of.  These guys have a track record of performing much better than this.  So, let's learn how the team responds to adversity.  Life is about character.

My old man is having a hairball. Good thing I am 3452 miles away (as the hairball flies).

His offloading is much better than his passing, why I am glad he is now back to wing.

I'd like to see Betham and TV playing wing or full back with Tait mainly a centre from now on. Don't think Tait has the pace for running it back these days but he's still got the footwork to do the job in the midfield and his passing game in underrated.
