Saracens flanker Jacques Burger has signed a new long-term contract with the Premiership club.

The 25-times capped Namibia captain has played 32 times for Sarries since joining from South African side Bulls in December 2009.

"It was a very easy decision," the 27-year-old said.

"Saracens is a special club, the Premiership is a fantastic competition and Lehanie [Burger's wife] and I are very happy in north London."

This season Burger has made 16 appearances and scooped the Premiership player of the month award for October.

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall added: "Jacques produces outstanding performances week after week and we're delighted he has pledged his future to the club."
