Saracens head coach Mark McCall hailed his side’s consistency after they booked their place in the Aviva Premiership play-offs with a comprehensive victory over Bath Rugby at Allianz Park.

The hosts backed up their nine tries against Northampton Saints at Franklin’s Gardens with another clinical attacking display to defeat the Blue, Black and Whites 41-6.

It is the ninth successive campaign Sarries have finished in the top four and given themselves a shot at silverware at the end of the season, with one more win required to seal a home semi-final.

McCall praised his troops for making sure the showing against Saints was not just a one-off and said it has not always been the case this season.

“It was important today that we backed up last week's performance with another half-decent performance, which we did,” he said.

“I think this year, more than some of the last couple of years, we haven't always had that consistency of performance from week-to-week - we've had some really high-level performances but not always backed it up.

“When this project began nine years ago, one of the big objectives was to become consistent in lots of ways without lots of players and staff coming and going, and I think that’s been achieved.”

As well as conjuring up another try-fest, Saracens also showed their consistency in defence as they avoided conceding a single point in the second half for the second game running.

McCall has now called on his side to maintain their high level to guarantee a home semi-final as they look to reclaim the Premiership title from Exeter Chiefs.

“It’s important we start putting together a run of games and it was important after last week to play the way we did (against Bath),” he added.

“We’ve got four points to gain to guarantee ourselves a home semi-final and we’ll work very hard to do that.”

Tries from Schalk Brits and Liam Williams put Sarries 14-0 up inside 21 minutes against the visitors, before Richard Wigglesworth, Owen Farrell, Schalk Burger and Ben Spencer completed the scoring.

The result marked a memorable afternoon for Saracens winger Chris Wyles, who led the club out on his 250th appearance ahead of his retirement at the end of the season.

“It’s been a long ten years, but it’s been quite the journey with Saracens and I feel very privileged to be at this club during that whole time,” said Wyles.

“It’s been an amazing experience for me. It’s mixed emotions, I made the decision a couple of months ago. It does feel a bit strange that I’ll be retiring but I think it’s the right decision and I’ll just be excited to be a fan of Saracens.

“It’s been a slightly mixed season for us but we’re coming good now – two good results and we’ve got experience so I think that will hold us in good stead moving forward.”
