Itoje played one of the games of his life for the men in black, and his premium s***housery had rugby fans around the World as he and Saracens ground down a strong Leinster at the weekend.

His defensive work in the final few minutes of the weekend’s match was World Class.

Fans weren’t happy at all with Itoje being supposedly offside.

The footage actually shows the 25-year-old was well onside and just timed his run to perfection, so all thw fans hating on Itoje have no reason to do so.

Welsh legend Sam Warburton was praising the London-man to no end after the game.

Saracens completed a weekend raid on Dublin that left the PRO14 Champions humbled on their own doorstep. Leinster hadn’t lost in 25 games, their previous defeat coming against the same opposition in last season’s Heineken Champions Cup.

It’s two on the bounce against Leinster for McCall’s men in what has become European rugby’s showpiece club rivalry. Yet it felt like more than that. Saracens, who are languishing at the bottom of the Gallagher Premiership thanks to a 105 point reduction for breaches of the salary cap, have been cast as the villains of world rugby.
