Stephen Myler has admitted his pride at reaching the 2.000 points mark at Saints.

The fly-half, second only to Paul Grayson in the club’s all-time points scorers list, hit the milestone in Friday’s 39-31 win against Newcastle Falcons.

Myler grabbed a try early on and added 12 points in a typically assured kicking display.

He was given a standing ovation when he left the field with 20 minutes to go, and the 30-year-old enjoyed his moment in the spotlight.

“It (the milestone) is not something I was aware of at the start of the game, but it was something that made me proud when I was made aware of it at the time,” said Myler, who joined Saints from rugby league outfit Salford City Reds in 2006.

“It’s a proud moment for me to be held in that kind of company.

“It’s not something I ever envisaged when I came to the club, but I’m proud that I’ve got there and hopefully I can get a few more before my time’s up!

“My first points were against Leicester in the LV= Cup, and I had a bit of a shocker, only kicking one from five. But I look back with fond memories of that game because we won!

“It seems a very long time ago but it’s been an enjoyable journey and I’m glad it’s not over yet.”
