Sarries very good, Glos rabbits in headlights never at the races after the first try. Glos fans were actually quite annoying during the interviews, have a bit of class

One thing Sarries are not is boring. A boring side wont beat Leinster convincingly.

I feel all dirty now

I suppose it is a subjective thing, I am bored by them personally. It is predictable, there are no risks = dull.

Not sure I could watch Exeter do push over tries from 5 yards all season long.

Fair play though that’s there thing.

When we won the Prem our season was full of 5m line out, maul tries. We loved it back then.

I preferred the open field tries, and I would prefer to win it with open filed attacking style. It is possible as NZ do it. Just not sure it is possible in the prem.

Totally agree but it’s interesting that some have been critical of Chiefs for playing this way, they’ve been doing it for a while, remember Waldrom at the back of their mauls. I too prefer the running, offloading game we’ve been playing this season. That said we did use 5m maul a lot when we were winning the Premiership. All round game is what we seek and we’re getting there, we’re just not there yet but hey we’re miles nearer than we were just a few months ago.

Is the NZ style not one which we try to emulate, with lots of contestable kicks and lightning fast counter attacks? Obviously not saying we're anywhere close to as good as them but the All Blacks are normally top of the kicking stats, but the difference is their kicks are much more clever and purposeful than most.

Also not sure you can say we take no risks - our aggressive rush defense is very risky as it's quite easy to get wrong and then open up the outside a la Glaws first try. Contestable box kicks are also very risky compared to long box kicks as tapping back with a bouncing ball can easily lead to an opposition break if the ball bounces the wrong way and our players aren't in the right positions.

Anyways, congrats on a great season. I can't wait to see yours, quins and Glaws evolution next year as all on the up playing exciting rugby.
