SAINTS 33 SALE 14 Myler proud of reaching double century

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Myler has spent his entire rugby union career at the Saints, working his way up from being a raw rugby league convert up to a full England cap and appearances in the finals of both the Heineken Cup and Aviva Premiership.


He lies second on the club's all-time points scoring list, a total he added to with four conversions of the Saints' five tries.


But while he acknowledged his pride at reaching the landmark, Myler insisted that it came second to a good team performance and another Aviva Premiership bonus point win.


"It is a big achievement and something that I'm very proud of," he told BBC Radio Northampton on Friday night. "But I wasn't putting too much emphasis on it. Today I was more concerned on us getting the right result and going back up the table.


"It is a pleasing milestone to reach, I can't deny that, but it's something that happens, like scoring points or scoring tries. These are the type of milestones that happen if you're playing well and contributing to the team performance.


"The club's been good to me and it's pleasing that I'm still here after all this time and have played this number of games. My focus never changes though; I just try to play my best and to keep on improving and helping the team prosper."


The Saints hit the road once again for the next fortnight before returning back to the Gardens for two massive matches, against the Ospreys in the Heineken Cup on Sunday, October 20th and Saracens in the Aviva Premiership on Saturday, October 26th.
