Hougaard opens up about injuries caused by "overplaying" and why Worcester will measure themselves against the best this season.
Ahead of what will be his fourth season at Sixways, Springbok scrum-half Francois Hougaard opens up to Crashball Rugby's Ali Stokes about the "overplaying" that lead to an array of injuries that have limited the 30-year-old to an average of just seven Premiership games per-season in Worcester colours.
Hougaard also explains why the Warriors are measuring themselves against the best this season and why they couldn't be off to a better start.
Alan Solomons' Warriors kick off their first game of the Gallagher Premiership season in front of home crowds at Sixways Stadium next Saturday, welcoming last year's semi-finalists and local rivals Wasps.
