Prop duo extend Saracens stay

Saracens prop forward duo Richard Barrington and Titi Lamositele have signed new deals with the club.

26-year old Barrington and 21-year old Lamositele are the latest players to have committed their futures to the reigning Aviva Premiership and European champions as Saracens continue to tie down their brightest talents to new deals.

Loosehead prop Richard Barrington arrived at Saracens as a virtual unknown, leaving Championship side Jersey in the summer of 2013 to link up with the Allianz Park outfit has signed a fresh three year deal with the club.
In that time, Barrington has carved out a reputation as one the Premiership’s most talented props in his 82 appearances for the club.

Having shared the loosehead duties with Mako Vunipola and Rhys Gill in previous seasons, Barrington will have more responsibility within the Double Champions’ squad with Gill’s move to Cardiff Blues over the summer.
Speaking about extending his stay at the club, Barrington said: “I’m delighted to have signed a new contract. Ever since I arrived at the club I’ve felt at home, so to have the chance to extend my stay at Allianz Park was an opportunity I jumped at.

“We have a great set of guys here, with an amazing coaching and backroom staff supporting us. I’m delighted to be staying”.

Versatile prop forward Lamositele joins Barrington in signing a fresh deal with the club.

Lamositele, who has 22 appearances for Sarries to his name, has put pen to paper on a new two-year deal.

Speaking about his contract extension, Lamositele said: “Saracens have been great with me and have really developed my game. It’s such an exciting time to be associated with the club, and it’s the perfect place for me to continue to learn my trade.

“We have a great core of young players who will be at the club together for some time, so I’m really excited to be a part that.”

On Barrington’s and Lamositele’s contract extensions, director of rugby Mark McCall said: “Both Richard and Titi are valuable members of our squad. Richard is blossoming into a fine prop forward since we signed him from the Championship, and he still has room for improvement, which is very exciting for both him, and the club. In terms of Titi, he has quickly established himself as an important member of our group, and to do so in such a short amount of time underlines his talent.”
