Catalin Fercu signs for Saracens
Saracens have confirmed that Romanian international Catalin Fercu will join link up with the club at the end of the month from Timisoara Saracens. Fercu becomes the first player to have gained a contract with Saracens through the Saracens Global Network.
Mark McCall said; “Catalin made a strong impression when he played for us against Gloucester at the HAC in May, and we are delighted he has now agreed to move to north London. He is strong, tenacious and skilful and is equally capable on the wing and at full-back.”
Catalin Fercu; “I have an enormous desire to play in my new team, but I am aware I have to work twice as hard to reach their level. It is a new stage in my career as a sportsman and I wish to live as many beautiful moments as I did with Timisoara.”
Fercu, who is 28, has played 72 matches for the Oaks – Romania’s national team – scoring 28 tries. He recently finished third in the Super Liga CEC Bank with Timisoara Saracens, after winning the league twice, in 2012 and 2013.
