Goode looking forward to Harlequins clash
Full-Back Alex Goode has called for Saracens to maintain their impressive form for the duration of the season ahead of Sunday’s round 18 Aviva Premiership table-topping clash against Harlequins, kick-off is 2pm at Allianz Park
“We are reaching the business end of the season now and we are well aware that every team can beat each other on the day in the Premiership, so we certainly won’t be resting on our laurels,” he stressed.
“We have aimed to be peaking at the end of the year, so these last six or seven games we are planning to be playing well and most importantly winning well. So the message is clear for us at this time of the season, we have to go out at the weekend and play well and aim to maintain that until the season’s end.”
Goode has returned to the Saracens set-up along with Kelly Brown of Scotland, and fellow England representative’s Chris Ashton, Brad Barritt, Owen Farrell and Mako Vunipola, and Goode is looking forward to helping the team with the push for honours after what was a disappointing result in Cardiff;
“I think it’s easy for us to make the transition from International rugby to club rugby. Obviously the weekend’s result was quite painful to take, so it is good to get back to your club and the chance to play in a big game like Harlequins at home.”
He added: “It’s obviously great to be back with club. Saracens are the club who have helped me and others getEnglandrecognition, so it’s very important that I get back and help as much as can with the team’s big push towards the end of the season.”
