I know that's probably tongue in cheek, but it ain’t really true is it!deco wrote:"Horrible group of fabricated teams though - 3 of them with little/no domestic talent, plus Ospreys.
I mean the majority of Sarries side is either properly academy grown or ‘domestic’ (George, Kruis, Itoje, Wray, the Vunipolas, Wigglesworth, Spencer, Farrell, Lowzoski, Goode etc).
Sarries have the highest % of academy graduates in the premiership in fact.
For all our laughing at Munster, the crux of their side is still backboned by academy (Kilcoyne, 2x Scannells, Ryan, POM, JOB, Murray, Earls) and and domestic players too (Beirne, Joey, Farrell, Conway).
Racing are probably the one you could level that accusation at most, and even then they have a chunk of French guys like Machenaud, Thomas, Chavancy, Chat, Lauret, Ben Arous etc.
