Saracens lock Dominic Day will make his debut in the Major League Rugby next season after he was signed San Diego Legion.

Day joined Saracens in 2017 and was vital in the club winning the 2018/19 Premiership Rugby Shield title. Overall he has featured in 101 Premiership games with 80 out of it coming when he was a part of Bath Rugby between 2012 and 2016.

“It’s been an amazing two years,” he told the official website of the club.

“I’ve met a lot of really good people and have been a part of a team which has won four trophies since I’ve been here.

“It’s been more than I could ever have asked for. Saracens are a massive club and pride themselves on being up there and winning things; being part of that has been amazing.”

The 33-year-old has also represented Llanelli, Scarlets, Toyota Verblitz and Melbourne Rebels in the past before joining the Allianz Park outfit. Day has also featured for Wales in three Tests - with all of it coming during 2015.

“Dom has been a brilliant person to have at the club over the last two seasons. In particular he has played a key role in mentoring some of our younger players both on and off the field," said Director of Rugby Mark McCall.

“We wish him and Nadia well as they embark on this exciting new challenge and will always be grateful to him for the huge contribution he has made at our club.”
