Saracens v Barf

8-0 so far.
We are gifting Barf with loads of uncharacteristic unforced errors. At least half a dozen so far.
Must tighten up on that.

Loz misses an easy penalty. Only 4 out of 9 last week....it will matter a lot more this week.

bloody gamesmanship by Bath at the end of the first half; really really not the way to play rugby

Real cheap shot by their scrum half. Brits not happy at all. Very surprised that Wayne Barnes played along with it.
14-0 now.

Loz and Earle having a shocker. Bath deservedly winning this. I hope Sanderson is having some half time words...

P.s
Don't feed the trolls..

I think Barnes had two better options open to him. Penalty to Sarries and the warning of a card for deliberately throwing the ball at an opponent, or, I think, accidental offside - scrum Bath. None of which should take away from Bath's deserved lead - accurate in attack, strong in defence whilst we're playing dry weather rugby.

Not over yet!

Another unforced error by Loz. Having a mare today.
No time for hurt feelings. Bring Faz on asap.

Faz and Mako on. Instant impact.
Penalty try to Sarries. Barf deliberately collapsed driving maul on the line.
17-13.

Are either of those in the laws? I don't think so.

It's a dick move and no one likes to see it but it is a law.

Disappointing to lose having fought back so well in the second half but that was brilliant from Roko

What a fantastic game of rugby, for the neutral and for the biased. One of those which is always a real shame that 1 team has to lose.
Feel for you guys, but you played a full part in an early contender for match of the season.

It has been years since I last read the laws and expanded explanations but the second certainly was and I believe the first still is - as a referee's interpretation of a player's action.

But ultimately its simply well done Bath. They rode the storm, showed strength in defence and exploited our failings. I thought we'd deservedly nicked it but poor 7/22 play gave Roko the sniff he needed. Well played Bath.

So close. How often have we seen Mako complete that sort of pass? frustrating but Bath deserved winners in the end. Certainly positives to take from the game but lots to work on too.

Can't complain about that at all. I do feel we contributed to the result significantly by the number of unforced errors though. We had the win in our hands but threw it away...literally unfortunately.

It's pretty clear where the weaknesses are so it will be interesting to see if MMc makes changes for next week. I'm guessing he would have done anyway to ease the rest of the squad back in.

Well played Bath, we looked off the boil today too many errors and I'm worried about Loz's kicking. I'm sure we will improve in the coming weeks, Bath were hungry and really went for it. let's hope for another great game when we cross swords again.
