Saracens look to South Africa again for depth

Guinness Premiership leaders Saracens signed Namibia forward Jacques Burger from Super 14 team the Bulls on Wednesday.

Capped 25 times for Namibia, Burger was the stand out player for his country in the 2007 World Cup in France – performances that saw him sign for the Super 14 side the Bulls.

Burger, 26, could make his debut in Saturday’s league clash with Leicester at Vicarage Road after training with his new team-mates for the first time on Tuesday.

Burger, who has won 25 caps for Namibia, starred for his country at the 2007 World Cup and Saracens director of rugby Brendan Venter said: “Jacques is not only a quality player but he’s also a quality individual and we’re delighted he has joined us.

“I’ve worked with him before and he has the ability to play across the back row where his tenacity and work rate will add to the strength and depth of the squad.”
