Is it just me or are they the most boring team in the world?

Just you, I think. They played wet weather rugby brilliantly yesterday, and they've been scoring tries for fun against everyone else. Alex Goode ran for over 200m in one match. The opposite of boring, really.

I would not call them boring, they played good quality rugby last night - they pinned Quins in the corner and generated pressure.

If you ask, do i want to watch them play? no? i do not find their style particularly attractive.......

But then i choose to watch a bunch of jokers who seem to not always turn up - so what do i know???????

These days we usually play 2 1/2 styles of rugby, with a preference towards a mix of running rugby and tactical kicking.

Against you guys, the wind and your wingers forced us mainly into running it around, which I at least enjoyed (obviously with somewhat one-eyed viewpoint!)

A couple of times a season we get forced back into our 2012 style of rugby which, I concede, is more than a tad dull for anyone other than a Sarries' fan to watch.

5 points at the last estimate.

Excellent side though and are in no way boring as they were a few years back.

Well, specifically we were 5 points behind and the only team not to concede 4 tries this season.

Yeah, and they have more than twice as many league points. They're way ahead of us.

The biggest thing they have is consistency. If we could play like we did on Saturday against every other team we would easily accumulate enough points to ensure at least a top 6 finish. Gustard's big challenge this season is to try and get more performances like that one.

Yes, it was a joke.

I'd like to be "boring" if it means 4 Premiership titles, 2 European Champions Cups and that amount of talent.

Only thing they really need is a decent stadium. I like how they got creative with building he East Stand and will soon replicate it with the West Stand. Just a shame its so long to get too. Hopefully they will be allowed to have temporary north and south stands to allow them to permantly have 15,000 but I fear Green Belt and local opposition will mean they will stay at around £10,000 with only a Champions Cup quarter final to be 15,000.

I like Saracens. They can play a boring game, where it's like watching a crocodile eat a puppy, and they just grind the opposition down point by point, or they can play a wonderful, expansive running game that just blasts the opposition apart. The fact they didn't dare do that on Saturday was partly due to the weather but partly, I would say, a tribute to our team. They didn't want to risk anything by playing an expansive game, so we got the crocodile version.
