“He is a great scrummager, carries the ball well, makes a lot of tackles.” – Director of Rugby Mark McCall
Originally signing on to play in the Anglo-Welsh Cup, Richard Barrington has become a cult figure at Saracens since joining from Championship outfit Jersey in 2013.
He recently made his 200th appearance for the club in the win over Richmond, showing his incredibly longevity at StoneX Stadium.
The prop is much-loved member of the Sarries squad due his likeable, jokey personality and enthusiasm – displayed in abundance in the changing room, leading the now-famous post-victory celebrations, videos of which have been viewed across the globe.
On the pitch Barrington has developed into a fine scrummager and dependable asset. In his youth, the front rower was accustomed to life at blindside flanker before Hartpury College helped his transition to loosehead.
Director of Rugby Mark McCall commented that Jersey’s ‘loss was our gain’ when he made the permanent switch to the StoneX, and so it has proved with ‘Baz’ playing his part in securing three European Cups, four Premiership titles and the Anglo-Welsh Cup.
