Joubert previews Chiefs clash
Ernst Joubert is back in the Saracens starting XV this weekend to face Exeter Chiefs at Sandy Park.
The experienced No.8 packs down alongside Will Fraser and Jacques Burger in the back-row and believes Saracens are “confident” heading into Saturday’s game.
“Saturday is a massive challenge. It’s a tough away game, and they are very strong at Sandy Park. We have had a good record against them over the years, but I think it’s a different challenge now. They are second in the league, and we’re coming off a loss that we have to bounce back from.We’ve had a really good week, the boys are confident and we’re looking forward to going there.
“It’s almost in our culture now, that if we disappoint ourselves then we try to bounce back to the best of our ability, but by no means will playing Exeter be easy. They aren’t just going to sit back on the back foot and let us bunch them on the ropes”.
He added; “They are a very strong side and we’re going to have to be at our best this weekend”.
