Saracens clinched the title by beating Exeter Chiefs 37-34 in an intense, action-packed afternoon at HQ. However, for many neutrals the thought of Alex Goode heading out on a nightout is cause for real celebration.
Sadly, Goode has already ruled out going out in ‘his full kit’ in the below interview with the BBC.

Two weeks ago Goode became a living meme after his exploits after the Heineken Champions Cup win in Newcastle.
Joining his teammates for celebrations, the 31-year-old fullback still hadn’t changed out of his match kit a full 24 hours later, walking around the pub still with his boots on. Sean Maitland documented Goode’s exploits on his Instagram, stating that Goode is on a ‘different level’ before tagging England Rugby’s official account to notify them of Goode’s availability.
However, the 21-cap England international shared a photo today on social media of his kit on the floor, with the caption “over and out”, as he brought down the curtains on his festivities.

It’s been a remarkable couple of weeks for the sometime England fullback.
Despite being unwanted by England, an outstanding European season for Saracens has been capped off when Goode was named EPCR European Player of the Year 2019.
The full-back joined the list of three-time tournament winners as he helped his club to its third European title in four seasons with victory over Leinster Rugby in the Heineken Champions Cup final in front of a capacity crowd at Newcastle’s St James’ Park, where he was presented with the Anthony Foley Memorial Trophy.
Saracens win today completed a perfect campaign for the Gallagher Premiership club, who recorded a clean sweep of wins from their nine matches Champions Cup and can now add another Premiership title to the trophy cabinet.
