Rhodes delighted to return

Michael Rhodes was delighted to make his long return from injury against Bath on Sunday.

The South African was introduced midway through the second half for his first action since injuring his hamstring against Ospreys back in January.

Last season’s Players’ Player of the Season declared his body ‘good’ after the comeback and is happy to be out there in a Saracens jersey again.

“I’m very pleased to be back,” he said.

“It was nice to get some minutes out there and get the win against a good Bath side so I’m very chuffed.

“It’s been quite a long, frustrating journey back to playing footy.

“There were moments where I was huffing and puffing out there but that’ll come with time.

“I’ve had a long lay-off so I’ve got to get used to the contact again but the body feels good and it was great to get out there.”
