John, I should have worded the previous post better with regards to Saints, we have had a great time with the Saintly folk since way back when you visited us in the championship and beat us in the cup etc.
I have stood through two matches at home where every trick in the book has been used until the referee started taking notice, but even then one said he could do nothing. It wasn't in the spirit of the game just a tactic to try and knock the opponent off plan. in this case it did, but it is gamesmanship, as no rugby was being played.
I have no complaints about losing to Sarries as they won fair and square, just played at pace etc, well done to them.
Maybe we are still na´ve mentally in respect of keeping our eyes on the plan, no matter what tactics are used.
