No fear for Saracens – McCall

Date published: May 21 2015

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall is unconcerned by the Franklin's Gardens factor ahead of their Premiership semi-final with Northampton.

An emphatic victory over London Welsh helped secure Saracens a spot in the top four last weekend, which in turn set up a tough trip to the league winners.

Bath will play host to Leicester in the other semi-final but McCall believes that home field advantage will count for little in the upcoming knockout games.

"Northampton are a very good side, and particularly at Franklin's Gardens," Saracens boss McCall told BBC London 94.9 ahead of his side's visit to the Saints.

"But we have got a squad who don't mind being on the road and kind of relish hostile atmospheres."

He added: "The atmosphere we faced when we played Clermont in the Champions Cup was something very special."

"Having been through that and played quite a decent game that day, I don't think anywhere else will have big fear for us."
