Bad news today that Maro Itoje has been ruled out of the November Tests with a broken hand, joining fellow Sarries and England lock George Kruis on the sidelines. So the debate as to whether Itoje should move to the back row has now become somewhat redundant.That his loss is such a major blow to England is testament to the impact Itoje has had this year – don’t forget that he didn’t make his international debut until February.I was there at Allianz Park on Saturday watching Saracens take on a strong Scarlets team and feared the worst when Itoje left the field injured after an excellent display. Sarries were, at times, ruthlessly brilliant, with Mako Vunipola, Owen Farrell, Nick Tompkins and Michael Rhodes all showing up well.
