Sarries told to up their game

SARACENS’ chief Mark McCall says his side needs to show more consistency, despite yesterday’s 47-17 win over Worcester at Allianz Park guaranteeing them a home semi-final draw.

“We took our opportunities really well but weren’t all that content at half-time, to be honest,” Sarries director of rugby, McCall, said.

“Even at 23-3 ahead we hadn’t got anywhere near our usual standards and weren’t as cohesive as we normally are.”

Yet McCall also found time to praise David Strettle, who scored a hat-trick of tries during the victory.

Elsewhere, London Wasps conceded five tries as Leicester Tigers won 35-16 at Welford Road to secure themselves a top-four spot.

London Welsh lost 14-31 at home to Northampton, a result that condemns them to finishing bottom of the Aviva Premiership.
