Saracens braced for Jacques Burger two-month lay-off

Jacques Burger
Burger has been one of Saracens' most consistent performers this season

Saracens are expecting to lose flanker Jacques Burger for eight weeks after he injured his knee in Saturday's 29-15 victory at Northampton Saints.

The 27-year-old Namibia international will see a specialist to determine the full extent of the problem.

Burger, who lasted until half-time against Saints at the weekend, has featured 20 times this season.

He arrived from South African side Bulls in December 2009 and has gone on to play in 36 games for Sarries.
