Tompkins happy with Saracens' bouncebackability


Saracens fought back from a 17-11 half-time deficit to record victory over Worcester Warriors on Saturday.

Two second-half tries helped the Men in Black to a win, the perfect way of bouncing back from defeat the week before at Exeter Chiefs according to centre Nick Tompkins.

“It was a great way to bounce back,” he said.

“We’re still searching for that 80-minute performance; we need to do our talking on the pitch so it doesn’t take a half-time talking to to sort it out. 

“However, a win is a win and we’ve got to celebrate it; they’re a good side and they played well. 

“We’re going to get back at it and we’ll going. I think there’s a couple of things that we need to sort out, myself included, but it’s exciting. It’s good to bounce back.”

The match saw the return of David Strettle from a long-term injury and the winger made an impressive impact, scoring 13 minutes after entering the field.

Taking a short line off Owen Farrell’s shoulder, Strettle burst through a gap before rounding Worcester’s covering defender to dot down.

“It was great to see and it shows how much he adds,” Tompkins said.

“He’s a great player, an unbelievable talker and what he brings to the team is just class. It was really, really good to have him back.”
