Elliot Daly reckons he and his Saracens big-hitters stopped Doncaster’s physical pack in their tracks in an emphatic 50-15 victory at Castle Park.

Mark McCall’s men racked up eight tries in Yorkshire as the former Premiership heavyweights extended their strong start to the Championship season.

Steve Boden’s hosts had won five from five heading into the contest but Alex Lewington, Sean Maitland, Maro Itoje, Michael Rhodes, Tom Woolstencroft and Tom Whiteley all scored to propel Sarries to their fourth win of the season.

Aled Davies also crossed twice in the bonus-point triumph and centre Daly, 28, said: “They’re a physical team and we found that out first half.

“The first couple of carries, the boys really had to put some shots in to make sure we were at the right level.

“Their pack were brilliant today – they were round the field and always physical right to the 80th minute so we had to try and match them, get over the gain line and put them back. Hopefully we can take that into next weekend.

“We wanted to come out firing – we just got together what we wanted to do and tried to play as simple as possible.

“Obviously we’ve got some good forwards to get us over the gain line, so we gave them the ball, got the ball to space and it worked in the first half.

“It was about keeping the energy high in that second half – we could have easily dropped off and gone through the game but to put a few more tries on the board and for the boys to finish it the way they did is the most pleasing this for us.”

England captain Owen Farrell returned to the Saracens fold while Itoje, Jamie George and Mako and Billy Vunipola all started.

And McCall’s ruthless selection paid clear dividends as rampant Saracens blew their second-tier opponents away.

The hosts scored late tries through Jack Davies and Jack Spittle but the damage had already been done after a clinical display of attacking rugby.

Saracens host table-topping – and unbeaten – Ealing Trailfinders on Sunday and England ace Daly added: “Obviously [Doncaster] is a tough place to go and are an unbeaten team, so to come up here and do what we did was brilliant.

“But obviously there’s still stuff to work on ahead of a big game against Ealing.”
