“Our performance director Phil Morrow has trained a lot of incredible athletes and says there’s no one like Nick. No one with his athletic potential.” – Director of Rugby Mark McCall

Sometimes it’s easy to forget Nick Isiekwe is just in his early 20s due to his sizeable frame and the experience he already has.

The lock made his Saracens debut aged 18 and a mere year later was earning his first international cap for England.

Prior to that, he plied his trade at Old Albanian before joining the Sarries Academy and represented his country from Under-16 to Under-20 level.

Trialling many positions in that time, Isiekwe was tried at prop, centre, back row and lock – his height dictating the latter would be the preferred outcome.

The Hemel Hempstead-born forward’s breakthrough season for the Men in Black came in 2017/18 after making his international debut on England’s tour of Argentina. His consistent performances led to a starting role in the Premiership final against Exeter Chiefs which ended victorious.

Isiekwe has already featured over 50 times for his boyhood club.
