With the international window upon them, Saracens have moved to bolster their ranks over the coming months.


Saracens have a heavy schedule while their internationals are away, they face Sale in the Premiership Rugby Cup tonight, with a fixture against Worcester in the same competition next week. They return to Gallagher Premiership action on November 17th against Sale and also play Leicester Tigers during the international window. That’s all followed by five games in December.

As a result they’ve signed 125kg Samoan tighthead prop Hisa Sasagi on a short-term deal.

The 31-year-old prop arrives from New Zealand provincial side Otago.

Sasagi established himself as a regular starter in the ITM Cup in 2015, helping Otago reach the Championship semi-finals before being selected as a member of the Hurricanes wider training group ahead of the 2016 Super Rugby season.

The Samoa international will remain at Allianz Park until the end of January 2019.

Sasagi made his international debut in 2016 and has four caps to his name.
