McCall Praises "Strong Individual Performances Across The Team"
Mark McCall praised a number of key individual performances after the game against Scarlets this evening.
The Saracens Director of Rugby singled out the likes of Michael Rhodes, Mako Vunipola, Owen Farrell and Nick Tompkins who all shone in Saracens victory over Scarlets at Allianz Park.
Speaking after the game McCall said “I think there were a lot of strong performances, a lot of strong individual performances across the team. Michael Rhodes had a really prominent game today carried really well for us, Mako, Owen Farrell was magnificent for us. Nick Tompkins came in at the eleventh hour…and did a really good job for us as well so some good performances across the team.”
Reflecting on the game as a whole McCall admitted he was pleased with the win but added there were still things to improve on for his side. “We’re pleased we got the win that we wanted, we got the bonus point that we wanted” he said. “[We] did a lot of good things in the game, but also did some not so good things and obviously we don’t like to concede 26 points at home. We made some errors along the way and a few more handling errors that we would have liked, but that would be a bit glass half empty because some of the rugby that we produced was really nice.”
