Strettle humble in defeat after Irish loss

Winger David Strettle was magnanimous in defeat as he praised London Irish after Saracens were defeated 13-22 at Allianz Park by the Exiles

"Credit to London Irish - they really brought the physicality today and at times we struggled, which is something that we're not used to saying as a team" said the 30-year-old winger.

"We played against a very strong wind in the first half. We started brilliantly, and we really put pressure on them - I think we expected something to click in the second half and credit to London Irish it didn't.

"We play Sale next week and we are looking respond - It's always important to respond. We always say that it's a sign of a good team when they respond from defeat so we'll review game ion Monday, look at what we did wrong and prepare for a big game on Friday up in Salford" added Strettle.
