De Kock happy with Kingston Park result
Scrum half Neil de Kock says Saracens were “very happy” with their 23-25 win over Newcastle Falcons.
The experienced half-back crossed for Saracens’ first try of the game during the first half in a contest that the north Londoners narrowly won after Newcastle centre Juan Pablo Socino missed a late conversion for the home side.
Speaking after the game, De Kock said; “I thought for 70 minutes we were really good, and in the last ten minutes we let the game get a little bit loose. Credit to Newcastle, they came back with two tries and put us under a lot of pressure.
“We were disappointed with the end, but overall for large parts of the game I thought they were very good, and we put them under a lot of pressure. We got the win and we’re very happy with that.
“I enjoyed being out on the field and it was good to be out there amongst it. I thought across the board the boys were brilliant.
“I was lucky that I didn’t have to do so much for the try, I just had to fall over the line with no-one in front of me. If I got that wrong, it would have been pretty embarrassing!"
He added; “It was a big performance from everyone. To come up to Newcastle at this time of the year is not easy. So we’re very happy with the win”.
