    Not sure how much game time he'll see. Saracens have Maro Itoje and Jim Hamilton, but he does provide cover while George Kruis is recovering from ankle surgery.

    In fact, if Saracens can borrow Skelton over Christmas while Kruis recovers, playing alongside Itoje and Hamilton might be a really good education for him.

    I think Itoje is out injured at the moment.

    What is it about this sow's ear of a player that makes so many people bend over backwards to try and make him a silk purse?? Has any other player is history been given such royal treatment??

    I may be wrong...but I highly doubt it, because I'm an Alison

    No, he was injured and missed the November internationals, but he's back playing now. Might be short on match fitness, but probably still in better shape than Skelton!
