Saracens back rower Justin Melck has been called up to play for Germany in their European Championship clash against Sweden in Stockholm on Saturday 26th April.
Melck who qualifies for Germany through his mother, spoke to the DVR website about his call-up; “I don’t know a lot about German rugby, but the national team is having a very successful World Cup qualifying so far. Since my youth I have visited Germany regularly with my parents to visit my cousins and grandparents so to get to represent them at this stage of my rugby career is very nice.“
On his inclusion , German coach Kobus Potgeiter commented; “Justin is a player with a lot of experience . From him we can all only benefit and I ‘m very excited to see how he fits into our game plan”.
Melck has made 77 appearances for Saracens since making his debut against London Wasps in 2009.
