Scrum-half to stay with north Londoners through to summer of 2020

Scrum-half Richard Wigglesworth has extended his contract with Saracens through to the summer of 2020.

The England international’s deal was due to initially expire at the end of the current season, but has now had that contract extended by a further 12 months.

The 35-year-old initially moved to Allianz Park from Gallagher Premiership rivals Sale Sharks in the summer of 2010, so the new deal will see the experienced back rack up his 10th season with Sarries.

In that time, Wigglesworth has won three Premiership titles and two European Champions Cups.

The scrum-half also became the all-time record appearance maker in the Premiership earlier this season.

Wigglesworth told the club website: “I’ve been lucky enough to have been part of the club for nine years and I don’t think there’s too many people who have wanted to leave, and there’s a lot of people who have wanted come.

“I’m just one of those many people who want to be associated with the club. I’ve enjoyed a lot of success here and I’m not interested in that finishing at the moment.”
