Hargreaves signs with Saracens

Sharks lock Alistair Hargreaves has agreed to join Saracens from the start of the European season.

The 25-year-old Hargreaves has missed the majority of the Sharks’ 2012 campaign due to injury. On Monday it was confirmed that this will be his last season for the Sharks, and he decided to link up with Saracens.

‘Everybody in South African rugby knows there is something special happening at Saracens, and I can’t wait to get stuck in and make a contribution to the continuing development of the club,’ he said. ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for me at a crucial stage of my rugby career.’
