McCall praises Ashton and Farrell

Date published: December 21 2014

Saracens boss Mark McCall hailed a ‘job well done’ after his side enjoyed an eleven-try win over London Welsh at Allianz Park on Saturday.

McCall’s side played some brilliant rugby in a comprehensive victory over the Premiership basement dwellers, leaving the boss delighted.

“It was a job well done,” he told Saracens‘ website.

“It was a clinical performance and sometimes when you’ve got what you want at half-time it’s easy to take your foot off the gas and do the wrong things. The second half was probably better than the first half today and we scored some really good tries. We were thrilled to get the five points and a bit of confidence from today.”

Owen Farrell was voted man of the match in a superb personal display in which he kicked 23 points, and McCall was effusive in his praise for Saracens fly-half.

“I thought he looked really sharp today,” said McCall.

“He made good decisions and passed the ball really well. He placed kick well and had a great game, as did a lot of people. Chris Ashton scored a try in the first half and set a few up in the second half as well, and was a really good team man and was very unselfish. They both had phenomenal games for us today.”
