Hargreaves praises energised Saracens display
Alistair Hargreaves believes Saracens will keep on improving after their 39-0 win against Harlequins on Friday evening.
The Saracens skipper described his side’s performance against London rivals Harlequins as “tremendous” and challenged his side to maintain their performance levels going into next weekend’s Premiership clash away to London Irish.
“I can’t think of many games that I’ve left the field in a Sarries jersey with such an exceptional feeling,” said Hargreaves. “We’re proud of the effort and the work – it was a great day at the office.”
He added; “It was a big contrast from the Wasps game. This performance made it more obvious how poor we were last weekend. The energy was phenomenal. We lost guys to the bin and we still kept working really hard, working for each other. It was just an incredibly tremendous performance.
“We always strive to improve and keep raising the standards. This game was like any other game in that respect, so we’ll look to keep on developing as a team going into a tough away trip against London Irish.”
