Figallo humbled by warm welcome
Juan Figallo is one of Saracens recruits for the upcoming 2014/15 season, with the Los Pumas tighthead joining Mark McCall’s men from Top 14 side Montpellier.
The Argentine international has been preparing for his first season for Saracens during preseason training and has been impressed with the welcome he has received at the club.
“I feel like everybody is close to each other here and that they are great friends,” revealed the 26-year-old.
“Knowing Chello (Marcelo Bosch) and Jim (Hamilton) has helped me settle, but all of the other guys here have been very good. Jim helped me move all our stuff from Montpellier to here and Chello and me are really good friends from our time together with Argentina. I think I will enjoy my time here with everybody".
He added; “Leaving Montpellier wasn’t an easy decision to make, as I have been playing for them for a long time, but here at Saracens they take care of the player’s very well. They look to make you a stronger player”.
