North Londoners add to options in front row ahead of Gloucester clash

Saracens have bolstered their front row options with the signings of prop Christian Judge and hooker Joe Gray.

Judge has joined Sarries on a three-week loan deal from Greene King IPA Championship side Cornish Pirates, while former Harlequins forward Gray has signed a permanent deal until the end of the season.

Both could make their debuts for Mark McCall’s men in the Gallagher Premiership on Sunday when Gloucester visit Allianz Park.

As well as playing for the Pirates, the 25-year-old Judge has also turned out for Bedford Blues and Plymouth Albion, and will provide injury cover for Saracens.

Gray, meanwhile, started the season with Northampton Saints after signing a short-term deal to cover injuries.

The 30-year-old, who has one cap for England, spent pre-season training with Sarries after being released by Harlequins in the summer.

Gray with challenge Jamie George and Chris Tolofua for a starting berth during his time with the north Londoners.
