Saracens loose-head prop Richard Barrington says he is looking forward to testing himself against an all Springbok front-row at the weekend, when Saracens face the Cell C Sharks at Allianz Park.
Rewind a year and Barrington was on the bench for Jersey RFC playing the Rotherham Titans, now he is lining up against a Sharks front-row that have a combined total of 161 Springbok caps.
“I’m really looking forward to the game this Saturday. Any player wants to test themselves against the best, and the Sharks have quality throughout their team.
“We have a strong side this weekend, so it promises to be some contest” added Barrington.
