Saracens have announced that centre Sam Spink will be joining the Gallagher Premiership club ahead of the 2024/25 season.

Spink made his professional rugby debut with Wasps in 2018 and had a brief loan stint with Nottingham before moving to Australia making his debut with Western Force in 2023.

He also had represented England at the Under 18 and Under 20 levels and now will be competing with the likes of Nick Tompkins, Alex Lozowski and Olly Hartley at Saracens.

“There is still plenty of work to do here in Australia with the season only half way through but I’m very excited to be heading home and joining such a great club like Saracens," he told the club's official website.

"There is a really exciting young group forming and I can’t wait to be a part of it going forward.”

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall expressed delight over securing the signing of Spink.

“Sam has had a number of difficult challenges to contend with early in his career-injury wise and the demise of Wasps - but has shown great resilience to overcome these challenges and had the courage to travel to the other side of the world in order to progress his development.

"He is a tough, abrasive player and at 24, has both the potential and drive to take his game to the next level. We are delighted he has chosen to do that at Saracens.”

Saracens are positioned third in the Gallagher Premiership table with eight wins from 14 games.
