Saracens coach Alex Sanderson believes Men in Black threw away LV= Cup victory at Northampton Saints
11:39am Monday 3rd February 2014 in Sport
Saracens coach Alex Sanderson believes his team should have beat Northampton Saints on Saturday and that the defeat was due to the Men in Black's indiscipline.
Sarries lost a tight contest 20-16 at Franklin's Gardens although Sanderson's men will get the chance to avenge their defeat when they travel up the M1 to play Saints again in the semi-finals.
“I thought we did enough to win it”, Sanderson told reporters after the match.
“Coming down to Franklin’s Garden’s and putting yourself in a great position to win the game is no mean feat, but then we lost it and gave it to them through a lack of execution and ill-discipline.
“As I said to the lads, we can hold our heads up for effort and all the heart we put into it today.
"It’s a learning experience for them. In this competition when the stakes are raised, every mistake, every bit of ill-discipline carries a bigger ramification and a bigger consequence and we’ll learn from that."
Sarries will play Saints in at Franklin's Gardens in the competition's last four on the weekend of March 8.
