Botha focussed on performance at Wasps


Mouritz Botha says his team’s main focus this weekend will be on their own performance when they travel to Adams Park on Saturday to face Wasps.

“The next game is always the most important game at this club, and this week we are up against a very good side,” explained the second row.

“Dai Young has them well drilled, they play some expansive rugby and they have an impressive set piece.  We have ways to combat their threats but the main focus is concentrating on our game, and how we prepare ourselves to the danger Wasps pose.”

Botha comes back into the starting line-up for the game in Wycombe and talked about the responsibility to perform for the team.

He said:  “Coming back into the starting XV is massive, not just for me, but for everyone who is playing at the weekend.  We as players want to put a marker down, we have a fantastic squad here at Saracens so when it’s your chance to wear that starting shirt you have a responsibility to perform.

“We are aiming to maintain the momentum over the last few weeks where we have picked up some great wins with some impressive performances, and we want to continue that this Saturday.  It’s certainly not going to be easy, but if we work hard we can get the performance that we want.”
