be interesting to see if they could get it, would be far less opposition from other clubs and RFU to 14 teams

only meritocratic qualification makes you tougher :mullet 4:

Ah but sure they only managed to get Sarries scraped into the Euro Cup this year as they can't rest players.

Schlak Burger gets a minimum 2 week ban taken down to 1 for a guilty plea and previous good record.

I'd say what good record, but he might take my eye out in retaliation.

The other issue Saracens have been up against this season has been their dog fight to avoid relegation.
Leinster and Munster, even tho they're the last two teams in the Pro14 conferences aren't in a fight to avoid relegation.
There is logic in the above but you'd have to get the Nigels to explain it, they're good at that sort of thing.

Chris Boyd of the Hurricanes is taking over as Head Coach at Northampton from next September at the end of Super Rugby season.

Good appointment and will optimise Saints strengths.

They certainly seem keen to unload players that (conceivably) hog a large chunk of the wage bill.

Might also be an issue of player availability

New Zealand have struck a groundbreaking deal with Harlequins which will see the Premiership club become the go-to destination for All Blacks seeking a European sabbatical.
As part of the 'exchange programme', Harlequins will also send developing players and coaches to New Zealand to gain valuable experience.

Interesting.

The SRU have been sending players/ coaches to NZ for a few years now.

Where was George North today?

Good to see Kiss moving on. Good coach that got caught in the Ulster mess. Not sure why they want DK. I never thought he was that great a coach. Good "man manager" / motivator but not a coach that would bring new thinking to a team.

DOR maybe? Squad manager, underage structures?
I like your right leg. A lovely leg for the role.
I've got nothing against your right leg.
The trouble is ... neither have you

He's coming on as a technical consultant. Which could mean anything really. Is he just there to make it look Irish?
