It's a bit surreal - Wyles


The words of Chris Wyles:

I’ve said this many a time, to think when I was 13 or 14 that I would be playing in Premiership finals at Twickenham, I’d have laughed in your face.

I feel very privileged to be part of this group, to score two tries but not have to do too much and dot the ball down is amazing and watching the guys fight and how physical they were was incredible.

It’s a bit surreal, I think I’ll need a couple of months drinking a few beers to take it all in!

We’ve got some phenomenal players, leaders and staff who I think will lead this club to even better things, if that’s possible - we’ve had some amazing successes.

To have been involved in a journey like this with Saracens, they’re life lessons I will take through in everything I do moving forwards.

You hear as people leave the game, players talk about how much it meant to them to be in the rugby community and sometimes you can take it for granted.

But I feel acutely aware of the support I have had and the lessons I’ve learned. At Saracens in particular, how you concentrate on people.

What we’ve been able to do as a culture will keep me in good stead. It’s very easy as a competitive sportsman to get selfish and the thing to remember is that you’re part of a wider group.

A couple of us are leaving this season but that’s the hallmark of a good club, it shouldn’t matter who leaves there’s a group ethos that pushes us forward.

Having spent a decade here, and getting to meet these incredible people, I feel privileged to have been a part of this club and I’ll always have these amazing memories.
