Big step down in the second row for Sarries, as much as I like Rhodes.

Be interesting to see how he goes.

Tompkins getting the gig ahead of Bosch is great news, think he offers a real point of difference in the midfield :thumbup:

Is Duncan Taylor injured right now?

Can't understand why he's been included in the Scotland squad but doesn't seem to have played for Sarries this term.

Tigers to get dicked. Hopefully by less than last time they travelled to Sarries :uhoh:

Weak 2nd row for sarries, but with such quality elsewhere in the pack you imagine they will be ok.

After a good win at the weekend I think Tigers will keep their more limited game plan, but I dont expect much change out of sarries pack.

Ping to the corners and hope our 3 locks (fitzgerald is a lock) can win us some lineoit ball.

There doesn't appear to be that great of a disparity between the teams on paper, particularly in the absence of Itoje and Kruis.

The England coaches will have everything crossed that Farrell doesn't get injured.

And George

(Taylor is injured and Hartley has minimal game time this season)

Not quite the level of butchery we saw last night but Tigers can't afford to let many more chances like that go begging

Sarries seem to have made more errors than usual so far... still leading 7-0.

Sarries weak at the maul without Krutoje, if Youngs can get his darts right that could be a profitable area for Leicester to focus on. Three locks in their pack will help

Are they genuinely saying that Sarries would have Mako take the place kicks if Farrell went off? :o

He's flying today.

Thought Saracens should perhaps have gone for a scrum given the dominance they are having.

Sarries turning on the style. Super try.

This is going to be a shellacking.
