Saracens have confirmed the signing of prop Christian Judge from Cornish Pirates on a three-week loan deal.

Judge, who was represented Bedford and Plymouth in the past was part of the Cornwall side that went on to clinch the County Championship in 2015 and 2016.

He will join the Allianz Park outfit as an injury cover for prop Juan Figallo with the latter set to be on the sidelines for about four months following a knee injury.

Cornish Pirates’ coach Alan Paver believes the stint with Saracens will benefit Judge.

"Everyone will be aware that Christian has done extremely well for us over the last season, and at the start of the present one. He’s come on leaps and bounds.

"Saracens contacted us and looked at the possibility of Christian supporting their programme and we are delighted to be able to do that. We think it is great exposure for him and again demonstrates that we must be doing something right as a club to produce another very good front-rower.

"We are all very pleased for Christian, however Tyler Gendall has been training well and nipping at his heels, so on his return he will rightly have to fight pretty hard to get his shirt back."

Saracens currently are at second position in the Gallagher Premiership table with wins in all the three games until now and are scheduled to host Gloucester Rugby next at Allianz Park on 23rd September.
