McCall: Saracens have a long way to go
REACTION: Saracens coach Mark McCall says despite their five-point win which sees them go top of the Premiership standings, he feels his charges have a long way to go.
McCall believes Saracens have work to do if they are to match last season’s success after a 35-3 victory over Worcester Warriors at the London Double Header on Saturday.
Four second half tries from Jamie George, Alex Lozowski, Schalk Burger and a stunning individual effort from replacement scrumhalf Ben Spencer were enough for Sarries.
“I actually thought our skill level wasn’t great as a team, we could have passed the ball a lot better than we did," McCall said.
"We made a lot of errors with the ball – some of which was forced by Worcester, the rest was forced by ourselves and we will have to do a little bit of work on that.
“Overall I am not too happy, I am happy we got five points, we’re always happy to win, but that was a hugely rusty performance.
“I thought we defended well for the whole game, so that is something to hang our hat on.
“We need to give Worcester a lot of credit in that first-half, they were really physical and made life hard for us with the ball and at the breakdown.
“A lot of people played well, but we just need to be more consistent across the game than we were.”
