Saracens Head Coach Andy Farrell praised Chris Wyles’s work rate that led to the wing and USA star to score a crucial try in Saturday’s Heineken Cup win over the Ospreys at Wemlbey Stadium.

Wyles, who also scored in the opening two minutes, scored in the 46th minute to put his side up 28-16 in a match they won 31-26.

Wyles was involved in a ruck on the left side of the pitch, and somehow got out of that ruck and raced over in support on the right side, where he received a backhand pass from Schalk Brits to go over in the corner.

Farrell was impressed.

“For Chris Wyles to come from the far breakdown, on the other side of the field, which he’d just been involved in … to get all the way ‘round to the far side of the field to be on the inside of Schalk Brits – we needed a bit of magic from Schalk, but it needed a lot hard work from Chris Wyles.”
