Saracens continues adding good news, in the context in which he will play in the second division next season. Two days after confirming that Mako Vunipola is staying at the club, he now announced the renewal of one of his greatest figures: Owen Farrell.
The 28-year-old has been an integral part of the club’s success for more than a decade since his 2008 debut.
He graduated from the Academy in the same year alongside Jamie George, George Kruis, Jackson Wray and Will Fraser, and went international with England and captained his country at the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
Farrell racked up 17 points in Saracens’ first win in the Premiership Final and has since helped Mark McCall’s team win four other national titles and three European Cups.
The opening is one game away from reaching 200 appearances with the Sarries.
“The club means a lot to me,” said Farrell. “I have been here a long, long time and being thoughtful in the future is brilliant.
“Most of the older players are in a similar position. They would do anything to put us in the best possible position and that was telling during the tough times of this year and I am sure that will be the case in the future as well. ”
Rugby Director Mark McCall said: “Owen has grown up in Saracens; he’s in our academy from being a teenager to becoming a central figure in English rugby. “
