Sarries show character to beat Wasps


Saracens' director of rugby Mark McCall praised his side's tenacity after their 22-17 win over lowly London Wasps yesterday. McCall, whose team's victory was aided by Alex Goode's 17 points, said: "We showed character, discipline, patience and resolve to get the job done."

Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea feels Nick Easter has unfinished business with England after he helped Quins beat London Irish 30-23 on Saturday. "Did England get rid of him too quickly?" asked O'Shea, whose No 8 was left out of England's Six Nations squad. "Yes. Is he finished? No he is not."
