Saracens swoop for Rhodes

Saracens have announced the signing of forward Michael Rhodes from the Stormers.

The 27-year-old, who plays predominantly in the back row but can also play as lock, will join the club at the start of next season after agreeing a deal to join from the Stormers and Western Province.

Mark McCall, director of rugby at Allianz Park, told the club's website: "We have some time ago identified Michael as a player who could make significant contribution to the squad, playing in the second row or the back row, carrying the ball and we are confident we can provide an environment where he will realise his full potential.

"We're delighted he will be joining us next season."

Rhodes tweeted: "Very excited 2 be joining @Saracens at the end of SRugby and thank you for the warm welcome! Still got a big job to do for @THESTORMERS 1st!"
