It’s been an absolute joy to work with the younger lads - Clark


A clinical second half was the reason behind Saracens’ Premiership Rugby Cup victory over Worcester Warriors on the weekend.

The Men in Black scored two first-half tries but trailed by two points at the break before running in four second-40 scores to record their second win of the competition.

Captain Calum Clark says the group identified similar issues to what they experienced at Sale Sharks the week before and was pleased the team managed to change their approach from the game at the AJ Bell.

He said: “In the first half we were frustrated with the amount of ball we coughed up; we got in good attacking positions and we tried to force it a little bit, a bit like we did last week.

“We fixed that in the second half, managed to get some scoreboard pressure and we’re pleased with what we were able to do.”

Clark has been one of Sarries’ standout players in the past three weeks on his return from a broken arm.

He’s led a squad of mostly young talents who he can’t wait to see continue their development.

“It’s been an absolute joy to work with the younger lads and see their energy and what they’ve brought.

“I think we’ve learned absolutely loads as a group in the past three weeks but we’re not happy with exactly where we’re at with our performances; we have to keep learning, we have to keep pushing.

“To have won two and drawn one is really pleasing and I’m excited about this young group of lads.”

Sarries are back in Gallagher Premiership action this weekend against Sale Sharks. Tickets can be purchased from www.saracens.net/tickets.
