McCall Hails Saracens Euro Progress

McCall Hails Saracens Euro Progress

Director of rugby Mark McCall has called on Saracens to win Pool Three after beating Lyon to reach the Champions Cup quarter-finals.

The two-time European winners sealed a 28-10 bonus-point win over the French outfit courtesy of a brace of tries from centre Nick Tompkins, while flanker Jackson Wray and scrum-half Ben Spencer also got on the scoresheet.

The result means Sarries, who were also boosted by England lock Maro Itoje’s return from injury in the game, are now guaranteed a place in the last eight of the competition.

But McCall wants his unbeaten side to win the group by defeating Glasgow on home soil at Allianz Park in next week’s final round of pool games.

He said on BT Sport: “We had to work hard to get the four tries, but we did so I’m really pleased. “It felt a little bit like old Saracens. We dominated field position, we put them in positions they didn’t want to be in and defended well.

“We’ve still not won our group and we’ve got a might contest in Glasgow next week.”
