It was a ding-dong battle - Vunipola
Billy Vunipola says Saracens win at Scotstoun in the Heineken Champions Cup was enjoyable because of the difficult test Glasgow Warriors posed.
The Men in Black did the damage in the first period with Mike Rhodes crossing and Owen Farrell kicking eight points before having to stand firm in the second half.
Sarries managed to keep Dave Rennie’s side at bay and didn’t concede a single point in the second 40 on their way to a 13-3 score.
“It was a bit of a ding-dong battle,” Vunipola said.
“It was a tough win and we came out on the positive side of the result so it’s one to enjoy especially coming to a tough ground and against a tough team.
“We’ll take the victory, we’ll look to review and see how we get on.”
Similar to the match at Harlequins a week before, the match had a niggly edge with several heated confrontations but Vunipola believes Saracens knew it was coming.
“Every time we as a team turn up you have to expect that,” he explained.
“If want to be the team that we are it comes along with the package. It was tough but we enjoyed it.”
