Can't wait what a unit. Let's put our woes to one side for 80 minutes on Sunday and enjoy a massive game of rugby against an equally formidable side COYS

I expect us to go full bore for this. Would love to be relegated as European champions, and I bet the players feel the same.

Sod the Premiership let's win European Cup and go down united and less well paid but still an albeit different TEAM.



My wife and I are on the verge of splitting up because of my obsession with rugby.
I've decided to give it one last try......

Started off brightly, but it looks like the lads' heads have dropped. It's going to be a rough second 40'

Feeling sorry for Billy, another suspected broken forearm

What an amazing team. To keep doing what they do, with all that pressure, fantastic, brought a tear to my eye at the end.

Incredible performance. Not sure how the players coped with the emotions as I was about as low as I've been for ages by half time and euphoric by the end. Some exceptional character shown today and good recoveries by a few players who didn't have the best first half. Kruis huge yet again and yet again providing the obvious on field leadership.

I was impressed at us holding out last week a man down for the majority of the game but to do so against a team of Racings quality was a great demonstration of good tactics, execution and composure. Great atmosphere at the game too although it got a bit quiet either side of half time. Impressed that both sides of players didn't struggle more with the sun but it made Saracens kicking game a great tactic.

Forgot to say all the best to Billy. Hope his arm isn't as serious as it sounds.

A great 2nd half of rugby with total commitment from the 14 players on the pitch. Both Itoje and Kruis were immense. Earl doesnít look out of place at this level..

Great atmosphere in the East stand today with a lot more noise than usual.

Looking like another tough trip to Dublin coming up but I am sure the boys will be motivated enough.

What a great shame to see Billy depart with a possible broken forearm. He must be so down hearted.

Just looked at the calendar and it's eleven weeks to our next significant match, the ECC QTR final against Leinster. Even if Billy had fractured his arm he should be fully recovered by then and rested, as I assume he'll miss the 6N now.

An amazing display to hang on like that with only 14 men on the pitch - again. At least Skelton's inevitable ban won't make any difference now. In the end the win was more comfortable than the score would suggest after we gifted them 14 points early on. We seemed determined to make life difficult for ourselves at times.

At least we still have something to play for this season.

Looking back at it most of our problems were self inflicted, our attack way way too frenetic a lot of the time. Defence and set-piece excellent.
Not sure why Lewington didnít start, he certainly changed the game in our favour.
Are we going to hang onto Sanjay now we have a QF and cannot be punished further in the league?

Have to say I was pretty ambivalent going to the game but I'm so glad I did
The support was fantastic
and any doubts about the players' attitude were dispelled within the first 2 minutes!
By God they wanted that!
The next 18 months will be testing but after today I believe the family will stay together and come back stronger
The players showed what being a Saracen really means to them today
