Saracens coach Mark McCall thrilled with thrashing of Bath
Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall praised his "clinical" side following their 22-0 demolition of Bath at the Recreation Ground.
It was Sarries' eighth win in 11 matches and saw them briefly replace Harlequins at the top of the Aviva Premiership, though Quins returned to the summit later after beating Northampton.
McCall said: "We were clinical in all parts of our game. To get a 16-0 lead at half-time was probably well deserved."
On their league position, McCall added: "I think it's kind of irrelevant who's top of the table at the halfway point. We've played seven away games so we've got four proper away games to go and hopefully we'll have six games at our new home.
"To be where we are after 11 games - seven of which have been away from home and two of them in other places - is a pretty good effort."
Bath defensive coach Mike Ford admitted his side had come up short, saying: "Obviously, we knew what Saracens would do. It's not rocket science the way they play and conditions probably suited them a bit more than us.
"Fair play to them, they gave us a lesson today.
"I think the killer blow was the try. Once you go 10 points down, especially in conditions like that against a team of Saracens' ilk, then it's very, very difficult to pull it back.
"Their defence is outstanding, isn't it? Any time they were in our half, second half, they kicked three points. It's a good lesson for us about how to play the conditions, really."
