Argentina prop Figallo commits to Saracens


Argentina prop Juan Figallo has committed his future to Saracens by signing a new multi-year contract with the Premiership champions.

Figallo moved to Allianz Park from Montpellier ahead of the 2014-15 season and earned winners' medals in the Premiership and Anglo-Welsh Cup.

The 27-year-old, who has made 24 appearances for the club, will now stay with Saracens for the foreseeable future in a further boost following hooker Jamie George agreeing a new deal last month.

"Since I came over to England it's been a really enjoyable experience, both on and off the field," he told Saracens' official website.

"Last year we won the Aviva Premiership and this year we're doing well in both the league and in the Champions Cup. I've really enjoyed being here, I have a lot of friends and it's been a great move for me and my family.

"I'm focused on Saracens - playing here, enjoying the club, enjoying the life and enjoying rugby. I'm delighted to be able to extend my stay here and I'm looking forward to next few years at Allianz Park."

Figallo has made 24 appearances for Argentina, the last of which came in the Pumas' Rugby World Cup third-place play-off defeat to South Africa.
