Lam gutted as Sarries steal show

CONNACHT coach Pat Lam admitted he was very disappointed with his side's showing in the 64-6 defeat at Saracens on Saturday.

Lam said: "We know they are a top Premiership side but we were very disappointing as we missed tackles and dropped passes."

Those sentiments were echoed by Connacht full-back Gavin Duffy, who said: "I thought these days were behind us but today we were pulled round and bullied. The scoreboard doesn't lie and it was a really poor day for us."

Sarries ran in 11 tries in the victory with David Strettle notching a hat-trick and Chris Ashton adding another two as McCall's men qualified as one of the best two runners-up having finished behind Toulouse in Group Three.
