Much was made of the team Saracens could not produce yesterday and fair plays it would be impressive. But how about this one.....

B. Franks
Haywood
O. Franks
Api
Lawes
Brussow
Gibson
Harrison
Reinach
Biggar
Tuala
Francis
Proctor
Olowofela
Mallinder

with Hartley Garside Marshall Mitchell and others also not there.

We can be happy.

I think it would be even more impressive if Lewis Ludlam was in it!

the absent team is probably significantly stronger than the winning team yesterday -
Exciting strength in depth for once which lends itself well to keeping the squad refreshed and rotated across the season

I believe the statistic is around 30% of players are unavailable due to injury / suspension at any time, obviously that increases dramatically with the world cup on. When you add on that the bench are now very much part of the game plan the importance of a strong squad becomes even more evident.
