Saracens boss gets new deal

SARACENS director of rugby Mark McCall has signed a contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2015.

McCall, who took over from Brendan Venter during the 2010-11 season, led the Vicarage Road outfit to the Premiership title in his first season, as well as reaching the Heineken Cup semi-finals last year.

The 45-year-old has been joined by four members of his backroom staff in signing new contracts.

Kicking coach Dan Vickers, backs coach Kevin Sorrell and forward coaches Paul Gustard and Alex Sanderson all put pen to paper on deals running until the end of the 2014-15 season.
