100th appearance beckons for Strettle
Saracens winger David Strettle will make his 100th appearance for the club tonight, when Saracens face Bath at The Rec in round 16 of the Aviva Premiership, kick-off 19h45.
Since joining in 2010 from London rivals Harlequins, Strettle has been a fixture in the Saracens side and is enjoying one of his strongest seasons so far, with the 30-year-old flyer leading the Premiership try scoring charts, as well as scoring four tries in the Heineken Cup.
“It’s been an amazing three and half years so far here at Saracens" said Strettle.
"It feels like we have achieved a lot as a club and the feeling around the place is that we are ready to push on to achieve more.
“It doesn’t seem that long ago that I joined and I’ve enjoyed every second of my time here. It’s a great place to play your rugby".
Strettle starts on the right wing tonight in Bath, and the 14 time England international is under no illusions on the challenge of facing the Premiership's third placed side at their home ground.
“Bath, no matter how well they have been playing in the league has always been a very tough place to go to. It’s always a difficult place, and when they are playing as well as they have been lately it makes The Rec an even harder place to go and get a result.
"We are concentrating on going over there and putting in a strong performance" he added.
