Saracens bring in Kieran Low on season-long loan

Saracens have signed Scotland international lock forward Kieran Low from Glasgow Warriors on loan for the rest of the season.

The 24-year-old, who joined the Pro12 champions in the summer, has played three times for the Warriors but has not featured since early October and will join up with Saracens from January 1st.

Low is no stranger to the Aviva Premiership having made 43 appearances for London Irish, and has won five caps for Scotland. He has represented England at U18 and U20 level.

Saracens director of rugby, Mark McCall: "We are delighted to be able to bring in a player of Kieran’s calibre at this point of the season. He is an international quality lock forward who has plenty of Premiership experience. With a few injuries and the expectancy that we will lose a few second row forwards during the Six Nations we are very happy to be able to bring Kieran into the group."

Glasgow Warriors head coach Gregor Townsend said: "This is a good opportunity for Kieran to get game time in the Aviva Premiership and we wish him all the best at Saracens."
