Paris – Depleted
European Champions Cup holdersSaracenswere roundly beaten30-10by an
upbeatRacing 92, who ripped open their visitors with four tries at the
Paris La Defense Arena on Sunday.

Saracens made the trip to Paris without seven English internationals
as they looked for an upturn in fortunes after a horrible fortnight.

They dropped an appeal against a£5.4 millionfine
and a35-pointEnglish Premiership penalty for salary cap breaches
earlier on Sunday, according to British media reports.

The points deduction will come into effect on Monday and the European
champions could be forgiven for succumbing to a concerted French effort
in Paris.

“The outcome of today’s game was never going to change the individual
plans for those England players,” said Saracens director of rugby Mark
McCall.

“There were some who were considering playing next week (against Ospreys) and I’ll be talking to them again early next week.

“There are a few who I don’t think will because to be honest, they’re not ready.

“We won’t play them when they’re not ready.”

The defeat is doubly damagi

These plug-ins are quite smart.
