Yep Tompkins looks great. Wasn't it Billy V that scored the first. I could well be wrong..

No I'm sure it was Mako...that's why it was more impressive a prop outrageous dummying and go etc...

And Englands number 12 for the AI's is fit and pumping over the points again....

Saracens are a brutal and great example of just taking points when they are within range.

Its always been said just keep the scoreboard ticking over...and it puts pressure on the opposition and Saracens are just so efficient at doing it.

Would you say that Mako has lost quite a bit of weight (fat). Was that one of the instructions from Eddie Jones?

He looks leaner and fitter this season.

Yeah, that's probably why I mistook him for Billy. I think that you're right I do remember hearing something about no place in the team for fatties or similar. I think Billy looks leaner too actually.

Billy looked leaner last season aswell...but Mako was VERY heavy. It looks as though hes been through as serious conditioning programme this season....

Maybe the same one as the Big Z - Savickas (if you watch the world strongest man stuff) hes unrecognisable!

Yep - he used to have quite a gut. Whatever they've been doing has been working, that much is clear.

Mako almost did it again! Did I imagine it or did they say at half time he managed to slot a penalty from 50m when warming up pre match?

I Hope Itoge a precautionary measure too..

Class play by Farrell!

More great carrying by Mako.

Saracens just make it look easy.

And ANYONE who says they are boring, predictable etc....are just deluded and clueless!

Yeah they said Mako was taking monster kicks pre game ha ha

Ive been a big critic of Mako in the last few seasons etc....but this season and when he plays like this....he's up there amongst the best in the world!!

Yep, there's a lot of negativity directed towards Saracens which is unfair.

I wonder if this is a system that eventually England will be trying to imploy...with Gustard, Borthwick etc guiding things.....

Its very effective.

International players are dropping like flies!

Great score by Scarlets. Second try and Patchell converts.

37-26 to Saracens. 6 mins left. LBP for Scarlets possibly?

Poopie defence by Scarlets as Patchell jumps out and lets another stroll in.

44-26. Game over.

Fair play Sarries are something else clap clap

The result aside, I think that's the most enjoyable match I have watched in a long time.

They do have a lot of critics, but I think they've added an attack to their game plan in the last couple of years and so fans are starting to like them. They have also started to have there own developed players deliver

I thought Sarries played well and deserved their victory. Scarlets, I'm sure, gave it their best efforts but Saracens do take a bit of stopping.

Well played Saracens and congratulations to their supporters.

Thought Tompkins did very well (especially for a young lad) and has a good future, but MotM had to be Farrell yesterday. He looked very, very good in all aspects of his game. Mako looking in the form of his life too.

Fair play to Scarlets for a bit of a comeback (plenty of sides would have shipped 60+ there), but Sarries really are one heck of a side. It's them and Clermont setting the early pace.
