A dynamic and exciting player capable of covering any position across the back three, Sean Maitland is a big-game player who has a vast amount of experience.

Maitland scored in both the European final and Premiership final in 2018/19.

New Zealand-born, the winger attended an alumnus of the prestigious Hamilton Boys’ High School where he played in the first XV and competed in athletics, recording a personal best of 11.29 and 22.30 seconds for the 100m and 200m respectively, and threw the discus 45.47m.

He spent 2005 and 2006 in the New Zealand Schools team and was a member of both the New Zealand Under-19 and Under-20 World Championship-winning sides.

Maitland made his debut for Canterbury aged 17, making his first Super Rugby outing with Crusaders two years later. The kiwi featured New Zealand Maori before a move to Glasgow Warriors in 2012.

Eligible for Scotland due to his grandparents, he earned his first international cap in the 2013 Six Nations and linked up with the British & Irish Lions in Australia that summer.

He appeared in the 2015 Rugby World Cup prior to signing for London Irish and after a season at the Madejski, the Scotland man headed to Saracens.

His hard work and dedication off the field has led to some stunning performances and his contribution has helped Sarries to two Premiership and European titles.

He is one of the most experienced members of the squad with over 50 caps for Scotland and approaching a century for Saracens, making him a crucial member of the group.

It was nice to see Eroni Mawi getting a call up into the Fijian squad for the autumn internationals this week and he will be carrying on a rich tradition of Saracens who have played for the south sea islands team. In fact, he probably owes his call-up to one former Saracen, Simon Raiwalui.
