Bath win a lesson learned - Burger


Jacques Burger believes Saracens have learned the lessons of their defeat to Bath earlier this season, after his side exacted revenge over the West Country outfit in a 34-24 win at Allianz Park.

Burger was back to his quarrelsome best in the game, with the Namibian loose forward producing another physical performance during his 60 minute stint on the field.

Speaking after the game, Burger said: “The last time we played them over at The Rec, they were certainly the better side and we learned a couple of lessons from that game.

"They are definitely a side that needs to be respected, they are a very good side, with very good players. We showed them a lot of respect, but we played at the level that we know we can play.

“I thought we were dominant for the most of the game. They came back at us in the final parts of the game, and maybe defensively we weren’t at our best during that period.”

He added: “We’ve got to be happy with the win, it was very good win against a very good side.”
