Andy Saull said he was happy to play his part in the team’s win against Munster A and for them to achieve their target of securing a bonus point victory.

Saull continued the scoring run for the Carnegie number sevens with four tries against the Irish side but admitted he was disappointed that they allowed their opponents to get back into the game. 

"I thought the first half was excellent, we set out to score four tries, and we said we wanted to win with a bonus point to secure a home semi final," said the former Newcastle player.  "Unfortunately we let tMunster back into the game, I think perhaps we got a bit arrogant and tried to run it a bit too much from our own half in that second half and against a side like Munster, who are very well drilled, they will make you pay.

"We can't claim the tries ourselves, obviously it's the big guys up front who were excellent and the second rows, credit to them both in the scrum and at maul time. At the line outs they set the platform and all we do is hang on to the back, myself, Chris Walker, Josh Bainbridge and Jack Barnard. It is a bit of a pleasure but a bit of a hollow try because I felt the rest of the game was a bit creaky personally, but to get four tries I am thrilled with the work the guys put in up front."
