Despite only converting two out of eight attempts at the StoneX Stadium, Farrell’s teammates rallied with an impressive seven-try performance, securing a compelling 39-31 triumph over Bristol.

“It was one of those days for him wasn’t it?” said McCall. 

“But I don’t think we’ll see that again. 

“Owen was at the heart of our turnaround in the second-half to be honest. 

“And we were much more physical, much more energetic as a team after the break. 

“I thought we were flat in a number of things early on, even when that was happening. 

“I don’t the reason why right now, but three tries to one up, it didn’t feel like we were on top of things or as energetic as we had been the week before. 

“But I give the boys a lot of credit for doing something about it in the second-half.”
