Jacques Burger: 'Saracens had to be on top form to beat Northampton Saints'

Saracens flanker Jacques Burger admits that his side had to be on top form to beat Northampton Saints in the Aviva Premiership semi-finals.

Jacques Burger has admitted that Saracens had to be at their best to defeat Northampton Saints in the Aviva Premiership semi-finals.

Sarries made it through to their fourth final in six years on Saturday thanks to a 29-24 victory over the champions at Franklin's Gardens.

"They are a very big, physical side and we knew we needed to match them," Burger told BT Sport. "The boys put in one hell of a shift today.

"It is no secret that they have had the better of us the last couple of times and we knew we needed to be at our best. We stood up physically. Every collision we were there."

Saracens will take on either Bath or Leicester Tigers in next weekend's final at Twickenham Stadium.
