Luther Burrell is eager to end his Worcester woe on Saturday as he builds up to a dream December.

The Saints centre says he can’t remember winning an away game against the Warriors during his time at Leeds, Sale and now Northampton.

Burrell was not part of the Saints squad that picked up a 27-18 victory at Sixways in February.

And he is now keen to end his personal hoodoo as his club aim to maintain the momentum created by six successive wins ahead of a big Heineken Cup double-header against Leinster at the start of next month.

“I’m really looking forward to Saturday,” said Burrell.

“I can’t remember the last time I went to Worcester and did a job on them when I was in the starting line-up.

“To go down there and play will be fantastic for me, so hopefully we can get four points or maybe five. We’ll see.

“Then, building into the Heineken Cup it’s massive. Back-to-back with Leinster is what you dream of.

“It’s as close to an international game as you’re going to get.

“We’re getting them at home and then going to their place, which is going to have a hostile and loud crowd there which will be a great experience.”
