Shaw over the moon with Gnoll result
Joe Shaw was “ecstatic” with Saracens 9-21 win away to the Ospreys in the LV=Cup.
Shaw who presided over a youthful looking Saracens team, believed his side were deserved winners in the contest at a weather affected Gnoll in Neath.
Speaking after the game, Shaw said; “We are ecstatic about the result. Not many teams come down here and get a result and we came down tonight with a youthful team with a lot of lads who are from our academy, and coupled with a few senior guys, they all put in a great of shift. We were deserved winners."
He added; “It was torrential rain, and that’s what you expect when you come to South Wales at this time of year (laughs). The boys really stuck to the plan. I think we need to give a special mention to Ben Spencer. His kicking was red hot today, and I think the way he and Nils Mordt controlled the game in these conditions was superb.”
