Saracens star congratulated on record Premiership points haul
12:26 04 September 2012
Premiership Rugby today congratulated Charlie Hodgson for passing a record 2,000 career points in Saracen’s 40-3 victory over London Irish on Saturday.
The number 10 scored four conversions and three penalties to take him over the 2,000 milestone to 2,009 points, a feat which has never before been achieved in Premiership rugby.
Phil Winstanley, Premiership Rugby’s Rugby Director, said: “I’d like to congratulate Charlie on this fantastic achievement.
“Whilst today is recognising his significant achievements with the boot, his ability in all other aspects of the game shouldn’t be forgotten.
“He has shown time and again what a devastating attacking threat he is and his ability to pick out runners on the gain line is a constant threat to defenders.
“He was pivotal in Sale Sharks’ success and is proving just as influential at Saracens.”
Hodgson, who has played for Saracens and Sale Sharks at fly half, will today be presented with a trophy to mark his achievement along with a cheque donation to the charity of Charlie’s choice courtesy of Aviva.
Those snapping at the heels of Hodgson include Andy Goode on 1,635 points and Olly Barkley on 1,531 points. Jonny Wilkinson is on 1,489 points, Barry Everitt on 1,267 and Tim Stimpson on 1,243 in the points scoring table.
