Injury hit Saracens sign 6'4, 127kg prop from Scarlets
Saracens have signed Scarlets prop Alex Jeffries on a short-term loan deal. With Marco Riccioni and Alec Clarey both out with injuries, the tighthead prop will provide backup in the front row.
The 26-year-old, who joined the Scarlets from the Ospreys in 2019, has represented Wales at Under 18 and Under 20 levels, and will now compete for the number three shirt in North London alongside the likes of Vincent Koch and Sam Wainwright.
The 6’4, 127kg Jeffries says he is looking forward to his sojourn to the StoneX Stadium.
“I’m really looking forward to joining the club, It’s a great opportunity for me and I can’t wait to get started!”
Jeffries made his debut for Newport in the Welsh Premiership as a teenager and after impressing for the Black and Ambers, before joining the Ospreys in 2016, made 18 appearances and scored two tries in three seasons in Swansea.
He signed with Scarlets in 2019 but to date has made 5 appearances for the Welsh region.
