Saracens indomitable flanker Jacques Burger revealed that he was proud of both his own and his sides physical performance after Saracens beat the Cell C Sharks 23-15 at Allianz Park.
“I am as proud of the teams performance as I was my own. We were brilliant out there today” said the Namibian.
“We knew that their big guys would be coming around the corner out there pretty hard, and if you let these guys play then they will dominate you. So we knew they were going to be pretty physical and get off the line, which meant we had to get in their faces and not give them a second. We are really proud of our performance, everyone really stepped up today and we can happy with how we went out there today.
On his return to the side he added; “Being on the sidelines again for a few weeks means that every time I play I savour it, and I treat it if it were my last game of rugby. I just really enjoy playing rugby and to have that opportunity today to battle against a great team was brilliant”.
