Post match: Toulon v Saracens

  1. Yeah, those pens were odd, we needed a pen and a try, kick the central one, then push on for the try. Sort of the game that shows how much we miss Brad Barritt! Etzebeth was an absolute beast today.

  2. Etzebeth really was great. I was hoping it would be Maro’s revenge after the Lions but our pack never really got going tonight. Although we always clearly miss Barritt I never would’ve thought Faz would be the captain to turn down 3 in those circumstances.

  3. I just think we weren’t quite tight enough- spilled ball and loose passes. But we still did well but Toulon gave that game everything. Villiere is just great to watch.

  4. On your last point about Hunter-Hills almost try. I doubt Brace would've actually given the yellow. He seems to have left this win the changing room

  5. I'm gutted we were beaten but we were beaten by a better team. We can only learn. Let's not forget, Saracens are still a team in a building phase. To get to a European semi final and to be 2nd in the premiership despite everything that has gone on, it's a testament to how good they are.

  6. Kruis was always underrated IMO, one of the best in the world at his peak. Swinson has been a class signing, definitely helped fill the void and was missed yesterday. Still I expect more from Isiewke and Maro, they’re two international quality locks.

  7. I think sometimes you have to give it up to the other team- they constantly put us under pressure and forced us into errors.
