Saracens have confirmed that England Under20 international Ben Earl has signed a contract extension with the English Premiership club.

Earl, a product of Saracens Academy made his debut for the club in the Anglo-Welsh Cup in November 2016 and has also made eight appearances in the Aviva Premiership.

He was also part of the squad that featured in the final of the Junior World Championships against New Zealand and also captained the England team in the U20 Six Nations Championship earlier this year.

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall is delighted with the news of Earl remaining with the club.

"Ben is part of a fantastic crop of exciting young players coming through our academy.

"He has been at the club since he was 14-years-old and his development this season has been hugely encouraging.

"We’re delighted he’s committed his future to the club."

Meanwhile, Earl is hoping to propel his career with the Allianz Park outfit.

"The club has been unbelievably successful over the past five years and I’m just eager to continue that success.

"The coaches have been great with me and my exposure to Premiership Rugby. I’ve learnt a hell of a lot and it has only made me hungrier for more opportunities."

Saracens will host Wasps in the first semi-final of the ongoing season of Aviva Premiership at Allianz Park on 19th May.
