LONDON Irish fly-half Stephen Myler has urged his teammates to 'right the wrongs' of their dismal defeat to Sale when they visit reigning Gallagher Premiership and European champions Saracens on Saturday.

Exiles were outmuscled 41-7 at a rain-lashed Madejski Stadium last weekend, but Myler believes the squad will respond at Saracens.

He said: "We've reacted in a positive way in training. All the boys were disappointed with how we've performed.

"We've reviewed the (Sale) game and looked at what we didn't do as well as we wanted and what we need to improve for this weekend.

"The attitude in training has been really good and the nice thing is we have the opportunity to go out and right some wrongs, albeit it's a very difficult challenge in front of us.

"The boys are looking to improve on what we did for sure."

Despite Saracens missing a host of players competing in the World Cup final, Myler believes it is still one of the hardest games his side will face all season.

He continued: "There aren't many tougher games we could face on paper, facing the champions away.

"It's a massive test for us, but one we need to be ready for and one we're preparing hard for.

"I know the boys will be ready on Saturday and we'll give it our best shot.

"It's a work in progress for us this season and we're going to take little knocks here and there, but it's how we respond to it.

"The coaches have been clear about how they feel we can improve and we're working hard to do that."

Meanwhile, fit-again prop Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi is looking forward to the challenge having returned to action this season following his dislocated shoulder.

He said: "Saracens have got a good kicking system and they bring physicality along with a very good skill set, so we're going to have to take it to them all around the park and back ourselves against their skills."

South African lock, Ruan Botha, who scored his first Exiles try in the Sale defeat, added: "We've now had one win and one loss so we know how both feel, and it's up to us how we want to feel after the next game.
