Callum Hunter-Hill has become the latest player to confirm their departure from Saracens this summer after five seasons in London.

The 27-year-old joined the Gallagher Premiership giants in 2019 from Edinburgh and went on to make 81 appearances.

The former Scotland U20 lock’s final season at the StoneX Stadium was hampered by a knee injury sustained in the warm-up before playing Newcastle Falcons in November. His last appearance for the three-time European champions was therefore against Leicester Tigers on November 4.

Saracens have grown familiar with saying farewell to players this season, with a significant portion of their squad moving on.

The club have equally been busy recruiting ahead of next season, where they will be looking to improve on their fourth-place finish in the Premiership and their round of 16 exit in the Investec Champions Cup.

“I’d like to thank everyone involved at the club, coaches, physios, S&C and fans alike for helping me throughout my time at Saracens,” Hunter-Hill said.

“It’s been an absolute honour to represent this club, and being part of a Premiership-winning team is something I could only dream of.

“To all the players, thank you for everything. From the minute I came to the club to now at the end it has been constant enjoyment, I’ve loved every second and now have some great friends for life.

“Thank you!”

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall added: “Callum is a brilliant player who has worked very hard for us. His appetite to learn will serve him very well moving forward and we are very appreciative of everything he has done for us.

“We wish him all the best in his next challenge.”

All Blacks snatch another tight victory from England at Eden Park

First up to any of the ABs fans who accused us of “bluster” pre-series for saying it would be a competitive - I'm glad it turned out to be an excellent series to which the ABs were deserving winners and I hope next time a side tours you'll be a little more humble. I loved the heart shown by the English boys and how they managed to contain the AB attack for large parts of the series. Was very disappointed by the lack of cohesion and ambition ball in hand, we looked after the ball poorly and hardly went 2 phases without kicking it away. We're not giving ourselves enough opportunity to put phases together and build pressure. The ambition shown in the 6N against Ireland and France seems to have gone and our players look very hesitant with ball in hand, our line speed is faster without the ball than with it. Loving seeing Maro back to his best and Fin Baxter really impressed, Alex Mitchell looks to be one of the most complete 9s in world rugby, great around the base and impeccable kicking. Congrats to the ABs, far more dangerous and skillful than England. We contained you for large swathes but to shut down that amount of pace and skill for 80 mins is nigh on impossible. Managed to find a way to win and instinctively grabbed the rare opportunities which came your way. Finding ways to win in two tight test matches will I'm sure be a great experience for your younger players. Beauden needs to be in the starting 15, what a worldie.
