Mark McCall "chuffed" with Saracens win

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall says that he is "chuffed" with the team's performance during their 28-24 win over Northampton Saints.

Mark McCall has said that he was "chuffed" with Saracens' performance during their Aviva Premiership win over Northampton Saints.

The league leaders survived a strong finish from the Saints to clinch a 28-24 win, extending their advantage at the top of the table to 10 points.

The team's director of rugby told BBC Sport: "I wouldn't want the last 10 minutes to take away from the first 70. I was chuffed with how we played.

"I think that's up there with as good as we have played all season. What I enjoyed was the intent we had in everything we did, counter-attack, carrying the ball, defence. I thought we were really good.

"To play like that at Allianz Park is where we want to be in a playoff semi-final. We need two more points to get there and we're as close as we can be. We'll ignore the last 10 minutes."

Saracens face Newcastle Falcons next weekend.
