Definitely not at home, but I'd be happy to do it away (and at Exeter as well). Bath made 13 changes. Bristol did something similar a couple of weeks ago. Although I suppose it also depends on the fixtures either side.

But, sadly, it seems to be becoming the norm to give up the Saracens Away points.

What a ludicrous, cowardly suggestion!  ???

Didn't we win an epic battle last year?

Well, Sarries won't have Barritt in their squad this week. He's going under the knife...

AHEM! We lost to Sarries 24-11 this year (2018). Last year we beat them 20-19 at home, 29-30 at Allianz Park, and lost 40-19 at Wembley.

Whilst I admire top pedantry, the home games and Mickey Mouse Cup games weren't the debate. It was should we put our second string out in the away league game like Bath & Bristol. With that in mind your pedantry merely strengthens my point in that (using your calendar comparison rather than season comparison) we lost by 21 points, not 13.

The issue of the away game is one that you raised. The original thread was taken by most to be about our upcoming home game. Trying to predict what sort of team we should field in 6 months time when our positions may be different and injury lists different is pointless.

I was responding to the thread title not directly to your post. And yes, the equivalent game last year, we won 20-19.
