Just exactly how can Sarries afford Daly with the squad they already have and the salary cap? They must have to lose a key player surely.

I thought we found out a few years ago that the salary cap doesn't count if you're Saracens?

That is just a rumour that we could not possibly comment on.

Really QQ ? , my understanding was that you only had 2 players whose salary didn't count towards the salary cap which was designed to enable teh signing of world class talent - however English qualified players have salary 'subsidy' to the tune of 600k across the board so unless the English guys earns tons more than non English it makes no sense to use them - my  guess would be Saili and Horwill - but it will be the accountants that decide , and its a moving feast.

Sorry. It was a joke! J O K E

Yes, I know I didn't do a smiley, or whatever. If I (think of forfeit) will you forgive me?

Why would Itoje want to leave Saracens, sounds like a bit of "agents talk"?

If we were stealing a Sarries lock, I'd rather it were a real lump like Skelton, or Joel Kpoku.

I canít understand why Sarries want another England player who misses half the season - they must be loosing someone?

Why would Itoje join Quins?

I don't think he'd be even nearly worth it

Get either a more available less expensive English player or a monster saffa like Snyman

Itoje has won everything with Sarries. Maybe he wants a new challange. I was about to say "Maybe he wants to move to London to play" and then I remembered where Sarries are!! ;D

You wouldn't be disappointed if Itoje signed for Quins surely?

I would be unless he was fairly affordable, of which there is little chance.

Not sure we'd want to be signing England players in a WC season unless it was on at least a 3 year contract.

Itoje is a beast of a player, get into any side in the world.  Im just not sure we are in a position to pay big money for someone who would miss quite a bit of rugby.  Unlike Sarries our lock situation is not that great.  They have some real quality there without Itoje.  As a side note, Lawes is being linked to Sale and Ewels to Tigers.  I would take Ewels, Good player, young, down the England pecking order when everyone is fit.

Can we sign Etsebeth rather? He'd be good. Don't New Zealand have any locks they want to send us?

Itoje is an awesome player, would love to have him at quins, but not going to happen. He'd be a great replacement for horwill and play roughly the same number of games.

Can you sign another English prem player as marquee? Anyway, won't happen. He must be one of sarries top 5 players with Farrell, barritt, wiggle and mako
