If any team can lose a match from this position it's certainly Gloucester. This is a huge 20 minutes for Gloucester's season and Slater has a great opportunity to show what he can do to the pack.

Slater and Ackermann have looked great off the bench. The Glaws defence looks really well drilled.

Then captain  Heinz fluffs a kick straight to Woodburn for a suicidal try.

Not sure why Chiefs have turned down any hint of a kick at goal.

He needed to slow the game down and get the ball off the park. Picking and running for two steps before the kick was sloppy.

Agree Welly.

That looked like a one handed slap down. Should have been more than a scrum.

The one's that were walking out as Slade lines up his kick might be regretting it.

Those summer signings in the pack for Glaws might turn out to have been significant. Bringing on a leader like Slater was massive. With Owen Williams to help Heinz control the game when fit will help as well. Still that's a TBP win over the reigning champions.

Why they didn't replace Parling i do not know TBH.

He was getting on but his set piece was second to none.

As l predicted solid and workmanlike bit we did show a few flashes of something and we showed efficiency in taking points.

Wuss made a lot of unforced errors mind.

I suspect losing Dave Dennis late on and the replacement being Kvesic unbalanced the Chiefs lineout a bit.

Much respect for Baxter not being baited by the attempted wind up from Sara. Respectful and focused in defeat.

Not seen the game but the updates on BT seemed to suggest you matched them physically and the subbed on some impact to finish the job. Nice TBP start to the season for you guys.

Yeah we grafted. Wuss actually had quite a bit of possession and territory first half and early second but we just defended like we can soaking up the pressure..always two men making the tackle ...welch and Wilson leading the way.

Id prefer to see socino starting bigger games at 12 and we have a few big names to come back. Mystery still surrounds Gonevas complete lack of appearance in any game so far.  

Things look positive though as a falcon fan.

Wow the Worcester fans showing how bitter and pathetic they are as normal on the unoffy.

We only won because they were poor and all our points came from their mistakes lol. Where do they get this superiority attidue from.

All clubs have "fans" like that GF, especially on the unoffi, you want to see the Quins board after a loss mate, its carnage, difficult to believe a lot of the people on there are adults.

Stub the Wuss fan on here is a good poster, never has much to cheer either

Yeah Kingholm certainly seemed to enjoy that finale. Good to see Slater captaining the side once Heinz came off as well. He'll be club captain in a year or two.

Maybe you'll have cause for some real optimism this season. The game plan should come together with a few injury returnees and Ackermann there to continue his influence.

In the cold light of day (and without wanting to rub salt in the wounds) I would say that I think I got my league position prediction wrong, I believe Worcester will finish bottom. They look a poor team to me.

George Kruis off after less than 15 minutes. Looked like he might try and carry on, so perhaps not too serious. Bit surprised to see both him and Itoje starting, given their stint on the Lions.

Saracens already 2 tries on the board and leading 12-0. Mallinder just missed a kick to get Sainst on the board.

Mallinder gets a penalty in front of the posts, and makes it 17-3 after 25 minutes.

Saracens can do this to anyone but I'm absolutely shocked at how lazy Saints look. Maybe they are trying to force the board to make the much needed changes to the coaching staff.

Saints keep trying to counter the onslaught, but make mistakes and concede more points. No-one in control.

Oh, there's a seventh try for Sarries now under the posts. Hard to imagine any team will play as badly as this in the first round.

Sarries brilliant, but Mallinder really needs to consider his position, crap in defence and useless in attack.

Last year was bad, and I know it is only 40 minutes against probably the best side in the AP but what has he been doing over the last 4 months. Do we actually have an attack or defence coach, I know we have people getting paid to do those jobs, but what are they coaching. The whole coaching set up needs to be replaced from Dickens and Hopley up to Mallinder and no, not an over reaction to the first half, I was saying it at the end of last season. Obviously nothing has been learnt.
