Best-case sce­nario Mark McCall will use a set­tled squad to his ad­van­tage to keep Sara­cens con­sis­tent and they will start brightly. An­other Pre­mier­ship ti­tle and mak­ing at least the Cham­pi­ons Cup semi-fi­nals will be their goals. Worst-case sce­nario Fail­ing to top a Cham­pi­ons Cup group above Lyon, Glas­gow War­riors and Cardiff Blues would be seen as fail­ing to learn from last year’s mid-sea­son slump. Like­wise fail­ure to make the Pre­mier­ship play-offs com­fort­ably.
