Itoje primed for a big future - Callard

Maro Itoje will return to Saracens action this weekend, after an highly impressive outing for the England Saxons in Cork.

Itoje will be leading Saracens against the Exeter Chiefs in the crunch cup clash at Allianz Park on Sunday with the praise of Saxons Head Coach Jon Callard still ringing in his ears.

Callard praised the performance of the Saracens lock, who came on as an early replacement for James Gaskell to produce a composed and eye-catching performance in the Saxons’ 9-18 win against the Irish Wolfhounds.

"Maro was just sensational when he came on, what a huge impact he has," Callard said after the game.

"Whether he is ready for the Six Nations I can't say, whether he is ready for the World Cup I can't say, but what I can say is that he is going to be a big name for the future."
