Scrum-half arrives from Melbourne Rebels after agreeing short-term contract

Saracens have signed scrum-half Nic Stirzaker from Super Rugby side Melbourne Rebels on a three-month deal.

The London-born 26-year-old returns to the capital on a short-term deal and will compete with the likes of Richard Wigglesworth and Ben Spencer to start.

Stirzaker, who played for the Barbarians last year, could make his bow for their north Londoners when they visit Wasps in the Aviva Premiership on Sunday.

And the new signing cannot wait to get started, telling the club website: “I’ve settled in really well, St Albans is a cool place.
