Alex Waller has confessed that he "had no idea" of his latest achievement for Northampton Saints until after his side's meeting with Bath Rugby.
The 25-year-old became the first player to make 100 consecutive appearances in Premiership rugby when running out at the Recreation Ground on Saturday.
Waller had already reached a record of 88 unbroken outings midway through last season, but he was unaware of the century milestone which was racked up in the narrow 13-11 victory.
"I had no idea until I was told after the game," he told the Saints' official website. "I'm just thrilled to be involved that much; I've been a bit lucky with injuries, and hopefully that can continue in the future.
"I don't do anything different to anyone else, it just so happens that I've been involved. I love playing every second for this club and here's to a hundred more! We'll have to see though."
