Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall believes that it is a big achievement for the club to finish top of the Aviva Premiership table heading into the playoffs.

Mark McCall has described finishing top of the Aviva Premiership table as a "big achievement" for Saracens.

The club ended the season four points clear of second-placed Leicester Tigers, finishing the campaign with a 23-14 win over Bath yesterday.

The team's director of rugby told Sky Sports News: "It is a big achievement as Saracens have always struggled for consistency. However, it's now our fourth consecutive semi-final and the first time that we have finished top at the end of a regular season.

"We were very good in the first 20 minutes and had Mako Vunipola's pass to Chris Ashton not been judged to be forward it would have been a more relaxing afternoon for us.

"We have to give credit to Bath for they made it difficult for us but I am thrilled how well we have come back from last Sunday's defeat by Toulon."

Saracens will face Northampton Saints in the playoff semi-finals.
