Frustrated: Mark McCall

Saracens boss Mark McCall was left disappointed by his side's performance in their 21-11 Heineken Cup loss to Toulouse.

McCall's men scored the game's only try through Chris Ashton, but rarely looked like overcoming a dominant Toulouse outfit.

"Obviously we are very disappointed - we don't think that we gave the best account of Saracens today" said McCall.

"We just couldn't get any momentum today in our play. In the first half we gave them their points cheaply; they didn't have to work hard to get theirs and we had to work unbelievably hard to get ours - and then we died a slow death in the second half as they got their noses in front.

"I thought they were magnificent today, they were hard to play against and we sucked in to playing a game that we didn't really want to play, in terms of catch up.

"Today was a massive step up for us. They have a unique ability of raising their level for European games, but hopefully we can do a job on Connacht next Saturday so we can get the chance to prove that we were better than we were today."
