Cornish Pirates prop Christian Judge has joined Saracens on a three-week loan deal as cover for the injured prop Juan Figallo. The defending Premiership champions were rocked by the loss of the Figallo, who is set to miss four months with a knee problem, so have moved swiftly to ensure coach Mark McCall is not short on numbers heading into a busy period.
Therefore, Judge will come in with good credentials having helped the Cornwall side win the County Championship at Twickenham in 2015 and 2016, while he was an ever-present in the Championship last season.
Speaking about the 25-year-old’s short-term switch to Allianz Park, Pirates coach Alan Paver said: “We think it is great exposure for him and again demonstrates that we must be doing something right as a club to produce another very good front-rower.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
