As a tight-end, he made six appearances in the US National Football League (NFL).

Smith said: “It’s fantastic to be back. I learned a huge amount in the NFL, various elements that will help me become a better rugby player, but there is nothing like the Saracens environment and I am now completely focused on working hard and helping the squad achieve all our goals.”

Mark McCall, director of rugby, said: “Hayden is a phenomenal athlete with huge potential and it’s great to have him back in the fold.”
