|Rugby union career|
He played for Saracens, having joined them in the 2009/10 season, and played until the end of the 2015/16 season. The back row quickly earned a reputation as one of the toughest tacklers in the English Premiership following his arrival midway through the 2009/10 season – being named the Saracens Player of the Year in 2010/11.. He retired from professional rugby at the end of the 2015/2016 season. 
He has previously played for the Bulls. He played in France, in Aurillac in the 2007/08 season. Burger was brought in by Brendan Venter as a replacement for Wikus van der Heerden, who returned to South Africa.
He was captain of the Namibia national rugby union team and made his international debut against Zambia in 2004. He participated with the squad at the 2007 Rugby World Cup and 2011 Rugby World Cup. At the 2011 Rugby World Cup, the IRB's Rugby News Service listed Jacques Burger as one of the top 5 players of the tournament. Rugby News Service stated that Burger was "consistently the shining light in his side" and that "even as opposition scores mounted, the 28-year-old continued to tirelessly throw himself into the tackle and threaten turnover ball in the rucks."
