It was the fourth of six scores against a stubborn Treviso outfit and the centre attributed a hard working first half for grinding them down.
“It’s the first professional game I’ve ever had on my birthday so I was chuffed we got the win and also to get the try,” he told SaintsTV. “It was a good result all round!
“They’re a passionate side and it’s a tough place to come and get five points. The first half was a real arm wrestle but I think it took a lot out of their legs and allowed us to really get a grip of the game in that second half.”
The Saints head home for the second in a double header of ties with Treviso looking for another win in a congested pool and Burrell added that they are looking to end another Champion Cup block on a high.
“We know what we needed to do over these couple of weeks and we feel in a good place to produce a similar performance next week.
“Hopefully that will leave us in a good place to head to Ospreys and then welcome Racing back to the Gardens, two big games.”
Tickets are still available for the return leg at Franklin’s Gardens, but with less than 500 remaining you’ll have to be quick if you want to be there! CLICK HERE to book online now!
