Saracens Director of Rugby Mark McCall hailed his sides “most satisfying” win of the season, as Saracens maintained their 100% start of the season beating Harlequins at The Stoop
“In many ways that was the most satisfying win we’ve had this season” revealed the 45 year-old.
“Gloucester, Bath and Quins in a row was a tough ask, but it’s been the manner of the way we started – we’ve played some decent rugby along the way – It’s not about how you start, it’s about how you end. We just always want to be there or thereabouts and put ourselves in the frame for the top four, but we never look too far ahead.”
Saracens went into the break six points behind Harlequins and McCall praised his sides composure as Saracens went on to score 16 unanswered points in the second 40.
“We were very good for most of the game. When you’re down 12-6 teams can react by losing composure, but this group is very good at retaining composure and doing the right things,” said McCall.
“We built pressure on them all the way through in that second half. We won the second half 16-0 and played really well.
