I can't make up my mind whether Yarde was dawdling or whether Ashton really is that fast that he is able to come from behind to outpace Yarde as he did for his try.

He looked like a forward running back. Surely he'd just given up.

Think Yarde dawdled...when he saw Ashton was on his shoulder, he tried to accelerate but 'twas too late. Poor defensive concentration.

Not just poor - absolutely diabolical.

At least we had the excuse of a new team trying to bond as a unit but Quins had pretty settled team out tonight. Hopefully a good win tomorrow and it'll be someone else's turn to be relegation candidates on Monday night.

Ruthless efficiency from Sarries to win away from home like that and to defend so well. And it could so easily have been so many more but for a fine performance from Mike Brown.

With the exception of the last driving maul try, Sarries never really created what I would say was a positive attacking move. The majority of their scores came from 'pressure' mistakes by Quins. A 0-39 score line can't be knocked - it just seems wrong. Is this the new tactics of the future to not challenge and hang off line out contact?

Sorries are a very boring, but clinically ruthless and well organised team. They all understand their individual roles within the side and work as a team to execute the gameplan. It clearly gets results.

Quins were poor, very poor in fact. Too lateral and predicable. However, I'm still convinced they'll bounce back from this and finish in or around the top 4.

Agreed. I was just glad they didn't get the bonus point that I felt they didn't deserve. As impressive as their defense, organisation and teamwork was and as much as I as a lifelong rugby man can appreciate it it is not going to bring fans into the game. Also, as said in commentary, eventually they meet a team they cannot physically dominate then their complete lack of a plan B comes to haunt them - see the end of last season.

Do I wish Glaws were that ruthlessly efficient, hell yes! However Sarries have been like this for a few seasons now but I see no further evolution in their gameplan.

Quins pack doesn't seem to have been the same for the last couple of seasons. I wonder if we are seeing a Gloucester-esque decline in their front eight?
