‘Our attack was brilliant’ – Goode

Date published: April 2 2016

Saracens full-back Alex Goode has praised his side's attacking effort in the 30-10 victory over Bath in the Premiership at the Recreation Ground.

The bonus point victory puts the defending champions eight points clear of second placed Exeter. The Chiefs take on Worcester on Saturday.

27-year-old Goode, named man of the match, was instrumental throughout the visitors' attacking phases, assisting two of their four tries.

The full-back executed a brilliant flat pass that allowed replacement Mike Ellery to crash over in the corner for their second try.

The momentum shifted even more in the 49th minute when Bath full-back Anthony Watson was shown red for taking out Goode in the air, at this point the home side were trailing 3-18.

Crediting their relentless attack, Goode was satisfied with the manner in which Saracens made use of the extra man advantage.

He, however conceded that they need to shift their attention to next week's European Rugby Champions Cup quarter-final home game against Saints.

"I thought our attack, at times, was brilliant, really ruthless and we really went after them," Goode said.

"We've got to make sure we prepare well [for Northampton].

"It doesn't matter what happens, we've got to make sure we step up to the mark. 

"We've got to make sure we play well and put a big performance in. It doesn't matter what we did the week before."
