Saracens Academy graduate Matt Gallagher comes from decent rugby stock.

“The coaches have been brilliant with my transition from the Academy to the first team and the club is a great environment to be in.”

The full-back, who has featured on the wing in the Premiership and Champions Cup, is the son of former All-Black John Gallagher who won the Rugby World Cup in 1987.

Gallagher Jr is making his own waves in the game. A former Old Albanian loanee, the Londoner made his Sarries debut in November 2014 and went on to win the World Rugby Championship with England Under-20s later alongside Sarries teammates Max Malins and Jack Singleton.

He joined Bedford Blues on a dual-registration ahead of the 2016/17 campaign but was called into action early for Saracens early on, completing 80 minutes on his first Premiership outing and scoring in his third.

Two seasons later a European outing came for Gallagher, at home to Glasgow Warriors, as well as a number of league opportunities. He also helped Saracens Storm to the Premiership Rugby Shield title.
