Default Sterling Hops?

I was looking to buy some saaz rhizomes and can't find them anywhere. Does anyone know how sterling adds up to saaz?

Pretty close.

according to freshops.com Saaz Hybrid, aroma and oil composition very similar.

Even if you found saaz, they are a beast to grow. Sterling will grow much easier and produce more for you.
