Hargreaves can't wait for Twickenham clash
Lock-forward Alistair Hargreaves can’t wait to run out at Twickenham this Saturday and the South African is becoming more and more restless for Saturday’s Heineken Cup quarter-final against Ulster.
“I just want to get out there and play!” Hargreaves said. “There’s only 24 hours to go and I don’t think I can wait any longer to be honest. I just want to get out there!”
Hargreaves has been one of the cornerstones of what has been an impressive Saracens forward pack in recent weeks, and the Springbok international believes the set-piece will play a key-role in a game which the squad will be ‘relishing’.
“I think the lineout will be an important factor in the game, and we are lucky that we have a master of the line-out in Steve Borthwick. It’s going to be great to play against an old mate Johann (Muller) when we line up and it’s going to be one of many match-ups on Saturday that we will be relishing.”
He continued: “We are aware of how big the game is but we are treating it like every other game. We’ve done our homework on the opposition and we have prepared for the game like we would have any other weekend.
“The Heineken Cup is a massive competition and we want to make our mark in Europe and keep improving on the European stage.”
Tickets for the match will be on sale from the Twickenham Box Office on the day of the game.
