Alex Waller has called on Saints to put in an even more clinical performance when they face Treviso again on Saturday.

Jim Mallinder’s men racked up six tries at Stadio di Monigo last weekend, securing a crucial 38-15 bonus-point success.

They welcome the Italians for the return fixture, knowing a similar outcome is required.

And Waller, who scored Saints’ second try in Treviso, wants his team to be ruthless as they aim to enhance their chances of progressing from Champions Cup Pool 5.

“In previous years against Ulster and Leinster we had a setback in the first one and then had a chance to put things right,” said the prop.

“This time we’ve got a positive outcome in the first game and we’ll look to improve on that and look to put right a few things where we went wrong.

“It was by no means a perfect performance last Saturday and we’ll work on that to hopefully put in a more clinical display at Franklin’s Gardens.”

And he added: “Credit to Treviso, they play a very expansive game and they stretched us at times, but it’s nothing we can’t work on or correct.

“We were prepared for last week, but just had a few mental errors and it’s easily corrected so hopefully we can improve on that.”
