McCall praises mentality after Zebre win
Director of Rugby Mark McCall praised his sides preparation leading up to Saturday's game after Saracens ran away with a five try victory away to Zebre in Parma.
"What pleased me most this week was how good our preparation and mentality was" McCall revealed.
"We actually gave them a lot of respect in the build up to today's game, and we knew how difficult today could have been. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday training was at a very high level and I suppose we have to do the same this week and make sure we have the correct attitude which I'm sure this group will."
On the game itself McCall said ;"It was really good today because we did a very clinical job on Zebre, especially in the first half. The energy of the group in the opening 35 minutes was outstanding, we took our chances when they were there.
"We did make a bit of heavy weather getting the bonus point, credit to Zebre they came out in the second half and fought really hard so I'm delight to have come away with the bonus point win" he added.
