Since joining the club in 2014, Juan Figallo has been fast regaining the form that saw him classed as one of the best scrummagers in the world.

 

After an injury to his neck forced him to leave Montpellier somewhat prematurely, Figallo has amassed over 50 caps for Sarries since making his senior debut against Harlequins in November 2014.

 

His arrival at the club coincided with a very successful period in Sarries history, with the club winning an Anglo-Welsh title as well as Premiership and Champions Cup titles.

 

2016 in particular was an eventful year for Juan; signing a contract extension, winning the league-cup double, and celebrating the birth of his son- leaving to play a match against Gloucester just 45 minutes after the baby was born!

 

Juan has also been capped 24 times for his country, with his first match for ‘Los Pumas’ coming against France in Buenos Aires in 2010, before he was involved in two World Cups in 2011 and 2015.
