Elliot Daly follows England team-mate Jamie George in committing to Saracens

Elliot Daly has followed Jamie George’s lead by signalling his intent to remain with relegated Saracens.

The English and European champions will drop down into the Championship next season after breaching the Premiership’s salary cap rules.

Uncertainly surrounded several of Sarries’ international stars but England hooker George became the first to commit his future to the club earlier this week.

Club and international team-mate Daly has now announced his intention to do likewise.

“My plan is probably pretty similar to Jamie. I am still in contract,” said Daly, whose immediate focus remains with England and the Six Nations. 

“At the moment I am not thinking about that. It is coming but we have the rest of the season to sort it out. 

“At the moment, I am just thinking about the next couple of games with England and then when I get back to Sarries then start talking about next year.”

It has been an interesting start to life at Sarries for Daly, who walked straight into the crisis at Allianz Park following England’s Rugby World Cup final defeat.

However, he has no regrets about leaving Wasps, despite the off-field issues at his new club.

“My first day wasn’t the best. It’s a big thing and it’s not to be taken lightly, but the way Saracens dealt with the players I thought was really good,” Daly added.

“I didn’t see this coming, but I definitely don’t have any regrets joining. The way that we train, the players there, the coaching staff – it’s an amazing club to be at.

“When a club like Saracens want to sign you, the best team in Europe as they were at that time, it’s a no-brainer to go and play with some very good people.”
