Saints boss hails attitude
Northampton boss Jim Mallinder has praised his side's attitude following their comeback win over Glasgow on Sunday.
The Scots got off to a flying start at Franklin's Gardens, racing into a 15-point lead thanks to tries from Sean Lamont and Joshua Strauss, with Peter Horne also contributing to the scoreboard with his steady left boot. However, the Saints came back in fine style, as tries from Vasily Artemiev, Stephen Myler and a George Pisi double gave them a bonus point victory. Mallinder admits he was shocked by his side's sluggish start but has praised their commitment in coming back from such a tricky situation. "It could have gone a different way, and what you cannot do is underestimate sides in the Heineken Cup. We didn't do that - Glasgow are a quality team," he said. "We were under a bit of pressure, but what was pleasing was the way we came back and kept our composure. In the second half, we controlled the game. "I think we are in decent shape. When we are on top of our game we are a hard side to beat, and we need to keep at that intensity every single week."
