Many of their most high profile players are expected either to be loaned out for the season or even leave the club entirely.

George is among a cohort of loyal Saracens players that are set to stay at the North London club despite their ongoing difficulties.

Saracens were docked 70 points and fined £5.4 million after they were found to have breached the salary cap in four separate seasons.

Speaking to Sky Sports, George suggested he was ready to play in the Championship if need be.

“The detail of it, I’m not too sure about,” George told Sky Sports. “I’ll be staying at the club and using for for certain circumstances but I’m looking forward to playing some rugby next year.”

“I haven’t spoken to the other boys. My decision has been made. Purely from a personal point of view, I wouldn’t want to speak on their behalf.”

This week the club announced they will be donating £1,000 for every try scored by Saracens Men at Allianz Park to three good causes for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign.

The initiative will begin when Mark McCall’s side host Leicester Tigers on Saturday 7th March and money raised for each home dot down will be equally split between Saracens charity partner Duchenne UK, the Saracens Sport Foundation and the Saracens High School.

This weekend’s match against Sale Sharks (Saturday 15th February) will also be used to raise money for a separate charitable fund.

Worcester Warriors second row Michael Fatialofa’s JustGiving page will receive £1,000 for every Saracens try during the game as well as money collected via buckets around the ground, in the hospitality lounges and on the club’s match day shuttle buses.

With the ongoing uncertainty over Michael’s prognosis, length of rehabilitation and future career/work prospects, donations will help cover immediate necessities as well as future finances, costs and unforeseen expenses of Michael and his family.
