Positive: Juan Figallo

Argentina tighthead prop Juan Figallo has praised the friendly feel at his new club Saracens after arriving from Montpellier during the off-season.

One of the world's best in his position, the 26-year-old left Montpol after six years in France and has been impressed by the welcome at Sarries.

"I feel like everybody is close to each other here and that they are great friends," the international front-row forward told the club's website.

"Knowing Chello (Marcelo Bosch) and Jim (Hamilton) has helped me settle, but all of the other guys here have been very good. Jim helped me move all our stuff from Montpellier to here and Chello and me are really good friends from our time together with Argentina. I think I will enjoy my time here with everybody."

He added: "Leaving Montpellier wasn't an easy decision to make, as I have been playing for them for a long time, but here at Saracens they take care of the player's very well. They look to make you a stronger player."
