As others have said, we don't want to stoke a Saracens fire this weekend. Their club will be hurting and they'll be massively up for this with a no one likes us we don't care attitude. We will have to be on our game and other than the usual banter let's channel energy into getting behind the team.

Sorries will be so up for this game, it’s a real danger for us. We should all show humility, grace and respect to the sorries fans, and show respect to their players too. There is no need to pee them off any further.

If however, Mr Wray, decides to make a public announcement on telly, or if he wishes, in the middle of the pitch, he should get both barrels. As the top man at their club, the ‘buck’ stops with him.

I’ve said before, that I don’t value a loss to sorries as much as other clubs because the suspicion of financial doping has been around for a long time. But it would be a very sorries thing to do to smash us at the weekend, and that I would hate.

With their still 'illegally financed' team...

Just treat it as any other game.

The villain in this story, IMO, is the most objectionable Mr Wray and we should direct all our animosity in his direction as should Sarries fans - the both of them.

Either one of: complete and utter silence when they run out on to the pitch (possibly coupled with standing and turning backs on them) OR everyone in the stadium booing them as loudly as humanly possible.

I can only see one of those happening at Kingsholm. And Kingsholm is not a quiet place to watch rugby. :D

The world's press will be at KIngsholm on Saturday....our reaction and behaviour will be under a lot of scrutiny.....no doubt they'll be able to get some great knee jerk quotes.
I'd love to agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong....

If Wray has any balls at all, then he should be at Kingsholm with his club and be seen visibly supporting it. After all, it could be worse. The estate agents could be going to Sandy Park :lol:

I’ll be opting for complete silence especially because the norm is for us to make noise at CG. No need to turn backs either.

Booing will be expected, will appear pantomime and will support the Not Sorries apologists out there who think other clubs are just jealous of their success.

Silence would say a lot more.
