If that is aimed at Mallinder jnr. remember he is playing out of position with backs that are just so static.

Wasps scored in the first five minutes. Think all four matches in the Premiership so far have seen early tries.

Snr.

also think your only out and out senior 10 is Myler. Francis will IMO produce a similar game to Mallinder at 10.

I took that as being aimed at his Dad but his son will struggle to compete for an England spot if Saints play like this.

Robson has two tries for Wasps now. Not sure why he didn't get more of a look-in for England but it will be hard to ignore him if he carries on on this form.

Eddie seems like the kind of person that can and will ignore that kind of form if he doesn't like the player.

Christian Wade gets his first try and Wasps are 21-0 up against Sale. Maybe Saints won't look so bad after all.

Saints have three tries, so they have a realistic bonus point target for the last fifteen minutes.

48-24

Dan Robson has a hat-trick. Maitland beat him to the season's first but I like Robson's collection better.

Ha! Sale restarted, Ashley Hughes caught it, and passed to Dan Robson who was promptly charged down by Ben Curry for a score.

Even though it was the 80th minute of a dead game it is Frak ridiculous that Itoje wasn't binned for pulling that maul down.

How on earth is that not a penalty try. Wade was clean through playing football and was tackled...!!

Second bad decision this weekend after the ridiculous Worcester one last night!

Wasps better team for most of the game in all areas.

I am happy with our attack but Wasps have all too easily carved up our defence. If we are to have a decent season the defence needs to improve and a lower error count. We will have to live with a light weight pack for the moment.

De Klerk looks a very very good signing.

They should be! Irish are looking good and Sale look like they are going to score tries. I'd be concerned if I was a Northampton fan too, they aren't too good to be involved in a relegation fight either.

So bloody nervòus for this second half. Losing Mulchrone is a huge blow for us, he is our defensive leader.

Yes despite the ref desperately trying to find a reason to disallow their first try .... notice he didn't bother checking the short offload for Quins' try though even though it looked like it may have been a touch forwards to me ...

PS no idea what's going on with this site - had to make a new username as it said there was suspicious activity on my account and locked it then made me try to do one of those stupid word match things which no matter how many times I did it and matched exactly what was on the screen it wouldn't let me back in ... maybe trying to tell me something Smile

Hadn't actually heard of this Smith lad before the media got their pre-premiership buzz going.

Pretty good game so far for a 17? year old debut. Bit of nerves and trying too hard but to be expected. Glad we have some more 10s coming through as just Swiel was a but worrying.

Walker has looked good as usual. Hopefully he can start most weeks.

Typical quins season opener of a game. Making very hard work of things....

Irish's defence looks very well drilled, but Quins look very average. A lot of people seem to have predicted Glos will be the big name team that struggle this year. I think it'll be Quins and the Saints. I can't see either improving much with their current coaching set ups. Still early days I suppose.

One of my pals is a season ticket holder at Saints...and after ribbing him about his relegation battle with Worcester this season has challenged me to a bet that the Saints will be above the Falcons this season. I've accepted but still waiting for the stake Laugh

For the first time I have a slight bit of confidence in this one...

Good performance from LI, great try.

Do have to wonder how long the big names will stay with us at quins if the performances continue to be so poor.

Would love to finish above them. Big ask as their squad still looks pretty large. I honestly think Mallinder has them firmly in reverse. Their pack now, minus Lawes, looks absolutely rank average.
