Strettle's cunning plan

Injury-prone winger David Strettle has hit upon a unique method of ensuring he stays injury free for the 2011 Rugby World Cup by agreeing to join Saracens from Harlequins next season.

The 26 year old England winger will move to Vicarage Road for the start of the 2010/11 season and is excited about the Sarries style of play under director of rugby Brendan Venter.

"Everybody in rugby can see there is something special happening at Saracens," said Strettle. "I am looking forward to being part of it, especially given that it's highly unlikely that I'll get the ball next season so there's very little chance of me getting injured. That's a big bonus given that it's a World Cup year.

"I'll also get lots of practice chasing high kicks, which means I should fit in with England quite well."
