George - Quins win the 'benchmark'
Jamie George believes Saracens set a performance benchmark in their 39-0 win away to Harlequins on Friday night.
George played 80 minutes in Saracens impressive victory and the 24-year-old hooker has challenged his side to replicate the same kind of performance throughout the season.
“We have to build-on Friday’s game for the rest of the season now. That performance is the benchmark,” said George.
He added; “Even on the side-lines, talking to the guys on the bench, you could feel the energy of the team. We knew we had to work hard and that was one of the best performances I’ve been involved with in my career so far. It was great to be a part of that team which had so much energy and enthusiasm.
“We kept cool heads and got stuck in when we needed to. It was an amazing effort and we have to carry this into next weekend against London Irish.”
