Duncan Taylor signs new contract with Saracens

Scotland international Duncan Taylor has agreed a new contract with reigning Aviva Premiership champions Saracens.

The London club said 12 times-capped Taylor had signed a "multi-year" deal.

Taylor, a 26-year-old centre, is in the Scotland squad for this season's RBS 6 Nations Championship and could be involved in next week's Murrayfield opener against England.

He joined Saracens from Bedford in 2011 and has featured for them at centre, wing and full-back.

Saracens rugby director Mark McCall said: " Duncan is one of the game's most underrated players.

"He can cover so many positions, and I don't think he gets the credit for the wonderful work he can do with and without the ball. His work-rate and contribution to this team is enormous.

"He's a brilliant player who will only get better and better, so we are delighted that he has committed his future to the club."
