England wing Elliot Daly has signed a new two-year contract with Saracens, extending his stay with the club until 2026.

The 31-year-old joined the North London outfit in 2019 after almost a decade with Wasps, and helped them win the Gallagher Premiership last season, scoring a try in the final.

The five-cap British & Irish Lion is currently on duty with England, where he started on the wing in their opening two matches of the Guinness Six Nations.

Daly has joined his England teammates Jamie George and Maro Itoje in signing new deals at Saracens, although they will say goodbye to longstanding teammate Owen Farrell at the end of the current season, with the fly-half joining Racing 92 in the Top 14.

“Saracens is a special club and we have made some incredible memories over the last few years,” the 66-cap England international said.

“With the squad we have I believe there is so much to be excited about and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Daly’s Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall added: “We are thrilled that Elliot has extended his stay at the club. His influence on and off the field is growing all the time and he will be a key figure for us going forward and a huge help to our younger players who will benefit greatly from his experience and rugby IQ.

“Elliot is, on the one hand, hugely driven and competitive, always looking for ways to improve and, on the other, someone who lifts the environment and those around him with his enthusiasm, positivity and energy. We are lucky to have him.”

Saracens take on Leinster this Friday at the StoneX Stadium in a friendly fixture during the Six Nations, with their next competitive match coming against Harlequins on March 23.

Massive red flag raised by weakened Champions Cup teams – Andy Goode

I wonder if the problem of some teams not taking it that seriously would be helped by making performance in the champions cup count towards qualification and/or seeding in the following year’s competition. Eg. top four seeds would be winners of the URC, premiership, and top 14, plus best performing team in the previous year’s CC who have not otherwise qualified. Doing that the seedings for this years comp. would have been: Tier one: Saracens - Munster - Toulouse - la Rochelle Tier two: Sale - Stormers - Racing 92 - Leinster Tier three: Leicester - Connacht - Bordeaux - Exeter Tier four: Northampton - Ulster - Lyon - Sharks Tier five: Harlequins - Glasgow - Stade Francais - Edinburgh Tier six: Bath - Bulls - Toulon - Ospreys The competition would probably work better with fewer teams, so I’d probably favour only the first 4 tiers being invited, and then going straight to a quarter final without a round of 16. On the one hand this would possibly incentivise teams to take the champions cup seriously, and on the other it would mean that the latter stages would be more likely to involve teams that have demonstrated a willingness to take the competition seriously. The main differences between my proposed system and the actual draw is that mine would give la Rochelle a fairly easy ride to the quarters, and would either exclude the Bulls entirely or would give then an insurmountably difficult draw. As it happened Exeter got quite an easy pool draw but that was a bit of a fluke. My system would reward Exeter for being one of the teams that demonstrably devote a lot of attention to the CC by guaranteeing them a good draw.
