Director of rugby Mark McCall expressed his disappointment with the way Saracens executed their drop-goal move at the end of the 14-12 defeat to Exeter on Sunday.

With Charlie Hodgson and Owen Farrell both ready to strike, a Matt Stevens knock-on let Exeter off the hook and allowed the referee to blow the final whistle.

It was the second week running McCall's men spurned the chance to steal a last minute victory after they had also failed to do so in the 9-9 draw with Leicester.

McCall said: "The first one (against Leicester) was OK we just missed it but I thought today we lacked the right amount of composure just at the end there.

"We didn’t need to give the pass to Matt Stevens that we gave - we could have kept picking and going and working our way towards the middle of the posts where Charlie and Owen were in position for the drop-goal.

"It was a poor bit of play and it kind of summed up our performance in a way, we made too many errors, our control and our fundamentals weren’t good enough."
