Credit to us for our team spirit and belief - Lozowski
Alex Lozowski believes hard work turned the Gallagher Premiership final in Saracens’ favour.
The Men in Black twice came from behind to win the Twickenham showpiece, the second an 11-point deficit midway through the second period.
The title is the club’s fifth and sees them surpass the four won by Leicester Tigers and Wasps since the play-offs were introduced in 2002/03 and Lozowski admits it may take time for the players to realise how big an accomplishment they have achieved.
"I think everyone has worked so hard to get here," he said,
"Some of those lads were involved in the 2016 one as well. I think we will probably enjoy the next few days and then reflect and realise what a great achievement it is.
"Maybe when we all retire and hang up our boots it will be nice to look back on.
"The boys are all so hungry, and I think they want to enjoy the off-season, come back and then do it all again."
Despite the 37-34 and Sam Hill’s try in the red making the scoreline closer, Lozowski says Sarries weren’t at their best and will continue to seek improvements ahead of the 2019/20 season.
He said: "You have to give credit to Exeter and the way they played, and it definitely felt like a harder game to come back from, I think.
"Credit our boys for having the team spirit and the belief to come back. I am not sure how we won, to be honest.
"Probably at the end, it was a kind of a weird feeling because we knew we didn't really play that well, but you quickly forget about that, and who cares? We've won the double, so that's all good.
"We are not the finished article, and we have all got to have a look at that game and how we can be better.
"We want to come back better next season, because we know that everyone else will be doing the same.
"Other teams are gunning for you, and hopefully if we get to more big games like that, we play better than that."
