Saracens playing a game that defeats the object of their punishment. Players on season long loans, and recruitment from lower leagues and the bringing players out of retirement. Makes a mockery of the ruling.

So far confirmed as staying with Saracens; Farrell, the Vunipola brothers, Elliot Daly, Jaimie George, Sean Maitland. Maro Itoje’s future not yet confirmed.
It will be great to see even 2 or 3 of those players at the Mennaye, assuming next season gets underway. Socially distanced crowds are going to be very difficult to deal with all round if the pandemic is still around.

Saracens say they will only play the top guys in must tough matches. Pirates at Mennaye will be one of the close games.

We need to hope that the fixtures are kind to us, that the home fixture will be played when all the big guns in their team aren`t away on international duty. That`s assuming we can watch rugby at the Mennaye.
I guess near to end of season would be best?

Depends which way you look at it. If they are slightly below full strength we could beat them. With all their stars it would be a whole lot harder.

Sure we will fill the ground irrespective when the match is played at The Mennaye and if the distancing is not in force the more the merrier. Of course several exiles will be arriving at their ground so they can expect a few of us. Should be a great atmosphere at both grounds. Need the fixture list and distancing to be taken into account.
