Rugby legend Jacques Burger has penned an emotional message to his friend and former Saracens team-mate Mouritz Botha after his announcement.
The former England lock revealed today that he was having to hang up his boots after failing to recover from a concussion.
Botha played 142 games during his six seasons at Saracens, joining the Falcons in 2015 and going on to make 14 Premiership appearances for the Kingston Park club.
Here’s what Burger wrote to his friend:
