'I'm still pinching myself' Barrington


Richard Barrington will run-out for his 100th Saracens appearance on Saturday against Exeter Chiefs.

The popular front-row forward will become the 15th player in the Saracens squad to have reached the century milestone and speaking ahead of his special day he revealed how his ascent from the Championship to plying his trade for the reigning European and English champions is something his still finds hard to believe.

“It has been an amazing journey and I really do have to pinch myself now and again.” said Barrington

“If someone had suggested when I was fresh out of university and just starting with Jersey that I would have won European and Premiership honours I’d have asked if they’d been drinking. I just would not have believed it.”
