Saracens Director of Rugby Mark McCall said he was happy to have come away with the four points against a dogged Sale Sharks side who ran the league leaders close in a tight contest.
“Give Sale a lot of credit. They made us work very hard for it” said McCall.
“We weren’t at our best in the first half and we gave them some points. We had much more energy and dominated the second half but they made us battle for everything we’ve got.
“The Premiership is very competitive and Sale made us fight for everything today.
“Danny Cipriani had a good game at No.10 for them, and controlled things very well – we’re glad to come way with the win today” added McCall.
