Jackson Wray extends deal to stay at Allianz Park
Back rower Jackson Wray has committed his future to Saracens.
The 24-year old Saracens academy product has put pen paper to a long-term deal to stay at Allianz Park.
Wray is the latest player to extend his stay at the club, following in the footsteps of fellow Saracens academy products Owen Farrell, Maro Itoje and George Kruis in committing his future with the club.
Speaking about extending his deal, Wray said: “It was very easy decision to make. I’ve really enjoyed my time here since I arrived as a young lad. I’m very grateful for the opportunity to extend my deal, and I’m hoping to keep the momentum going.
"The club has been brilliant for me, it's everything the club do, and it’s the whole package that has made my time here so enjoyable. Extending my contract was something I was more than keen on doing"
Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall: “Jackson’s progress, especially during this season, has been fantastic. He has worked incredibly hard at improving all aspects of his game and is always striving to be a better player.
“He’s on the right track to gain higher honours and along with other members of the group, Jackson is a key part of Saracens going forward. We’re very happy that Jackson is the latest player to commit his future to the club.”
