Updated Sarries squad on Wiki - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saracens_ ... r_Squad-53

Still a formidable first XV but they are much weaker depth wise, particularly in the backline.

That starting backline isn't anything to fear either.

Team should look something like:

Mako, George, Koch, Kruis, Itoje, Rhodes, Wray, Billy, Wigglesworth, Farrell, Daly, Barritt, Taylor, Maitland, Goode
Carre, Woolstencroft, Figallo, Swinson, Clark, Davies, Vuniipola, Segun

I'd almost be going with a 6/2 split on our bench with Fardy and two of our array back rows. The way they'll look to beat us is through power up front.
Having say Porter, Cronin, Fardy, Leavy, Conan to come on with 20 to go would be a big boost for eg.

Agree...it is a good, strong first XV....here's a salarycens fan prediction...
To hypothetically face Leinster:

1. Mako Vunipola
2. Jamie George
3. Vincent Koch
4. Maro Itoje
5. Joel Kpoku
6. Calum Clark
7. Jackson Wray
8. Billy Vunipola
9. Richard Wigglesworth
10. Owen Farrell
11. Sean Maitland
12. Brad Barritt
13. Duncan Taylor
14. Elliot Daly
15. Alex Goode
16. Kapeli Pifeleti
17. Ralph Adams-Hale
18. Sam Wainwright
19. Jonathan Kpoku
20. Mike Rhodes
21. Tom Whiteley
22. Charlie Watson
23. Elliot Obatoyinbo
Don't think Kruis will be there in september...barritt is a maybe too. He's heading back to South Africa apparently.

I think you are right about stacking the leinster bench in the way you said wixfjord.

I like your right leg. A lovely leg for the role.
I've got nothing against your right leg.
The trouble is ... neither have you

Fullback Alex Goode and lock George Kruis have signed deals with Japanese clubs but the new Top League season is not due to begin until early 2021, meaning they could be available for Saracens against Leinster.
