3 out of the 4 finalists are from the Aviva.

Does this show that the game is thriving and is at a higher standard in England than it is at the other countries in Europe?

Does this show that an Anglo-Welsh league would be better for us than the Pro12?

It would be better, but the Pro12 will improve next season...?

What it does show is that the likes if Saracens who yes attract players but not because of silly French wages but have put together a very shrewd coaching team with the likes iof McCall, Sanderson and others and still benefit from Ventner's link to the club. These coaches have plied their trade far and wide unlike our very one eyed set up.
Saracens are still a learning Club and get wiser each year adding to their good Squad. Anyone who thinks that Saracens do not develop their own talent really needs check their research, not only do they bring on young English talent of their own but look for young English players who are in the Championship who they think can make the grade. They now at the Allianz have a home and contrary to most on this site do have a core fan base, not huge I accept but I do think that many like the new ground set up and I can see the numbers with success increasing.
