    Only 16,500 tickets sold, how disappointing. I think ticket price probably played a big roll in that.​Whoever wins will have to fork out even more as ticket prices for the final are looking even worse!

    Sarries can't give these tickets away for their usual quantity not quality!!!

    The whole European competition's been a big subdued this year, but looking forward to this. Hughes v Binny is a great sub plot.

    WC and six nations means there's been a lot of rugby this year.

    Sky made a big mistake not having any build up to this game at all.

    Nice of wasps to bring 16,000 fans

    Sounds like the Saracens chants are being made through the PA to me.

    It was the right call.

    Ashton had no intention of getting the ball and runs his shoulder into Halai.

    Nah, the shoulder to shoulder thing allows to compete for space in the process of trying to get the ball.

    Ashton tried to push him, and then regather the ball - two actions.

    Perhaps, but that sort of thing isn't punished very often. At full speed it looked fine to me. Anyway, good for the contest Sarries have to chase the game.

    Mostly because players don't do it because it's dull.

    I really wish Stuart Barnes would just stop.

    Saracens might just win this by boring us to death.

    Itoje and Robson have really impressed so far. Both Vunipolas have done well, and am looking forward to seeing more from Hughes. I like what Wade brings with his speed etc but I just don't see him as a good all round footballer which I think is a quality all England international backs should have. The only way I'd like to see him tour is if its at the expense of Ashton who really is a proper jeb end. Hes just got one of those faces. His glory-seeking, tackle shy, soccer player mentality permeates through into everything he does. Anybody else notice him collapsing after taking a high ball rather than move and risk taking the hit, even with Wigglesworth obstructing Hughes? Bringing Ashton would be a waste of a touring spot and I've seen nothing so far that would suggest otherwise.
