Burger to retire after Saracens' weekend clash

Saracens flanker Jacques Burger has confirmed he will retire from rugby following Sunday's Aviva Premiership game against Newcastle at Allianz Park.

Burger, 32, joined Saracens in 2009, while he captained Namibia and played in three successive World Cup campaigns, winning a total of 41 caps.

He established a reputation as one of the toughest tacklers in world rugby, and he was among the Premiership's most consistent performers during his time in England.
