Saracens boss steps down from role for medical reasons with immediate effect

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall is taking a “short break due to medical reasons”, the club has said.

The London club have won five Premiership titles and three European Champions Cups during McCall’s time in the role.

In a statement the club said: “People will always come first at our club and Mark will be given all of the support and time he needs.

“Meanwhile we would ask that everyone respects Mark’s privacy. Mark is obviously more than confident in the coaching team he has worked with for many years to temporarily take the reins.”
