Saracens are contemplating an official criticism to the Champions Cup organisers after accusing the Munster workforce physician of directing a “horrible” insult at England hooker Jamie George, which sparked a 30-man brawl on Saturday.

Director of rugby Mark McCall confirmed George was the sufferer of verbal abuse by Dr Jamie Kearns, the Irish province’s chief medic, in the course of the 15-6 win for Saracens which kept their Champions Cup defence alive.

The change, which occurred in the 50th minute, culminated in a brawl that spilt over the sidelines at Allianz Park and lasted a number of minutes.

Saracens assistant coach Alex Sanderson alleged throughout a pitchside interview that Dr Kearns “said something derogatory to Jamie George about his weight”, and McCall condemned the guests’ medic.

“Clearly this shouldn’t happen, we all know that. I don’t think what was said to Jamie was good at all. It started a 30-man brawl,” McCall mentioned.

“Owen Farrell obtained penalised for working into the melee however from what I noticed 29 different people bumped into it!

“It was a wierd penalty to offer and it was instigated by a member of their staff who mentioned one thing horrible to 1 of our players.

Saracens trailed 6-3 at the time of the incident, however the heightened feelings appeared to spur the hosts into producing their best rugby as they scored two late tries to retain sight of the quarter-finals.

“Theirs was one of the best defensive performances I’ve seen here but we made it too easy for them,” McCall mentioned. “We had been predictable.

“There was one other gear to go to and we found that in the final 25 minutes. It’s good as a result of we have proven ourselves what we’re succesful of. We simply try this more persistently now.

“Whether the brawl was coincidental I’m not sure, but we certainly played a lot better afterwards. The boys are buoyed at how they played and if we play rugby like that we’ll be tough to beat.”

Munster head coach Johann van Graan declined to supply his view on Dr Kearns’ involvement.

“I don’t know what happened there. There were a lot of people involved which wasn’t nice to see,” Van Graan mentioned.

“We will look into that, I won’t speculate on it. So many things happen in a game of rugby. You don’t want to see a fight.”
