Saracens Women ins and outs
There’s been a lot of change in the Saracens Women’s squad in the summer ahead of 2018/19 Tyrrells Premier 15s.
Three players are confirmed to have left, two are unavailable due their inclusion in the England Sevens squad with seven coming through the door at Allianz Park.
McKenna returns to the club for a second spell following an impressive stint on the international stage with both England Sevens and the Red Roses
Winger Casey, a former Ireland international, also returns to Saracens after plying her trade with the club prior to the 2014 Rugby World Cup.
Utility forward Rettie represented Scotland for the first time in 2018 Six Nations and joins from Championship side Thurrock.
Another addition from Thurrock, second row Duffy heads to North London off the back of an impressive year with Essex club.
A familiar face to most Sarries fans, Fleetwood won the Premiership with the Women in Black before going on the sevens circuit with England. She won a gold medal at the commonwealth games this year.
Miell will link-up with the squad in October. The ex-England Sevens and Bristol player is currently playing for Sydney University in Australia.
Scrum-half Hayward arrives from Worcester Valkyries and has represented England at Under-18 level.
Garnet Mackinder is now with Wasps while Italian lock Valeria Fedrighi has moved to play in France. Prop Sam Martinez Gion has returned home to the Netherlands. Everyone at Saracens Women wishes the trio all the best for the future.
Helena Rowland and Emma Uren remain signed to Sarries but are unavailable for Premier 15s selection due to their recent inclusion in full time England Sevens programme. The club wishes them the best of luck!
