Back at Sarries: Hayden Smith

Saracens have announced that former player Hayden Smith has rejoined the group after an eighteen-month stint in the NFL with the New York Jets.

The second-row made six appearances in American Football's elite competition and is pleased to return to the Aviva Premiership league leaders.

"It's fantastic to be back," he told the club website.

"I learned a huge amount in the NFL, various elements that will help me become a better rugby player, but there is nothing like the Saracens environment and I am now completely focussed on working hard and helping the squad achieve all our goals."

Director of rugby, Mark McCall, added: "Hayden is a phenomenal athlete with huge potential, and it's great to have him back in the fold."
