Owen Farrell started all five of England's RBS 6 Nations matches this year
England fly-half Owen Farrell has dismissed any suggestions that he may suffer from burn-out as he looks to guide Saracens to the Premiership final.
Farrell has had a busy season for club and country, starting all five matches during the RBS 6 Nations, and he could yet feature in two finals for Saracens before touring New Zealand with England.
All that has come after a successful tour with the Lions in Australia but 22-year-old Farrell believes he has the stamina to see out the rest of the campaign.
"You feel drained after it has all finished," he said. "But once you are in it, especially in games like we are at the minute, it is not hard to come to training in the morning and feel good because these are the games you have worked all year to play in.
"Some of the rugby we have been involved in this year I would not want it any other way. I have not looked back on it too much but it has been a brilliant year to be involved in and exciting, and one that I think I have learnt a lot from."
