Match winner Strettle praises Saracens resolve
Match winner David Strettle admitted he couldn’t have written a better script for an opening day performance after he crossed for a 79th minute winning try in Saracens' 34-28 win against Wasps.
“It was amazing to score the match winner," said Strettle. "To score a hat-trick try to win it in the last play of the game; I couldn't have written a better script myself.
“We had ten minutes to go and I was still thinking ‘we can win this’. That’s the good thing about playing in a good team such as ours, you always have that belief that you’ll turn it around. We always play for the full 80 minutes and we are very happy to have come away with the win today".
He added; “That fact we got the ‘W’ today was the important thing. We know we need to make a few improvements and we know the intensity in certain areas wasn’t there. Today's result is a building block for us. We are very good at Saracens at analysing where we fell short and we’ll hope to build on today going into a very tough game away to Harlequins at The Stoop next Friday”.
