Will Skelton is “very stoked” after signing a new two-year deal to keep him at Saracens until the summer of 2021. The 27-year-old has made 60 appearances for Sarries since joining on an initial short-term deal from the Waratahs in December 2016.
The Australia international lock has since made 60 appearances and subsequently played a key role in Saracens’ domestic and European double last season as he picked up the Players’ Player of the Year as a reward for his efforts.
He is delighted to commit his future at Allianz Park, especially as his wife Kate is also settled in the area and also playing rugby. Skelton told the club’s website: “I’m very stoked about it. It’s an opportunity to get better and it’s a blessing to do something you enjoy.
“I enjoy being in the boys’ company, the coaches are great and coming into working and enjoying your job is the main reason why we stayed. “Having the opportunity to stay here was almost a no-brainer for me. Having this culture of working hard and having great people around me made it an easy decision.”
