"His defensive effort and his ball carrying was superb - he was outstanding around the fringes tonight. It was a remarkable performance".
On the game as a whole McCall added; "I thought we deserved to win. After the first half we controlled the game very well and nearly scored when Duncan Taylor was held up over the line.
"What pleased me most today was that defensively we were outstanding. After last weeks disappointment to come up to Sale with a six day turnaround and get the win is very pleasing."
