Record-breaking Wigglesworth says fifth title is ‘pretty sweet’


Richard Wigglesworth made history by becoming the first player to win five Premiership titles on the weekend.

The first came back in 2006 with Sale Sharks before enjoying further success with Saracens since his move to north London eight years ago.

An emotional Wigglesworth expressed his delight of winning another domestic crown with the Men in Black and says it is even sweeter because of how the season unfolded.

He said: “When you get questioned, it is sweet when you win. We’ve questioned ourselves a lot this year.

“We talked that much in the build-up about what we went through in the middle of the season and all the rest of it, then to come out of the end of that and be as dominate as we have been in the last five weeks is pretty satisfying.

“It was pretty sweet knowing what we’ve been through to play the best stuff we probably ever have.

“There was a huge sense of enjoyment and relief that we’d managed to do it.”
