Brits praises brilliant support from fans
Try-Scorer Schalk Brits thanked fans for their “brilliant support” yesterday at Allianz Park following Saracens 27-12 victory over Harlequins.
Playing in his third game at Saracens new home, the hooker was spoke of the fantastic atmosphere during the game.
He said: “The most amazing thing was the brilliant support at Allianz Park and it’s fantastic for us players to come here and receive that kind of backing. The atmosphere was incredible, and to have another sell-out crowd here was fantastic. ”
Saracens victory over Harlequins has put them five points clear of the second place Leicester Tigers, but Brits refused to get carried away with the yesterday’s result and warned his team against complacency for the rest of the season.
“The whole team played extremely well and it was a good win for us. We didn’t treat this game differently to any other, and although it may have been billed as a “top-of-the-table clash” we prepared for this game as if we were playing any other team in the Premiership. Every weekend in this competition is very important.”
He added: “We’ve got to keep on working hard and keep improving, and we are concentrating on that next game because if you sit back and relax for one weekend in this competition, you will get punished.”
