South African flanker Mike Rhodes becomes the latest player to commit his immediate future to Saracens after signing a one-year contract extension.

Rhodes had the experience of playing for Super Rugby teams Sharks, Lions and Stormers before heading to Allianz Park in 2015 and on his debut season he enjoyed double of Premiership and Champions Cup titles.

The 32-year-old has gone on to play 93 times for the club that includes 68 Premiership appearances and has become an integral part of Sarries squad.

“I feel very privileged to have added another year to my contract here,” he told the official website of the club.

“It’s a place my family and I have really come to love over the past six years. We’ve obviously had some really good seasons; I’ve made a lot of good friends and I’ve just really enjoyed the way things are at the club.

“I want to put emphasis on actually enjoying my rugby. This season has been a long one; I’ve only been able to play one game so far and hopefully I get a couple more under my belt.”

Saracens will be facing automatic relegation to the second tier Championship competition at the end of the 2019/20 season following a series of salary cap breaches.
