Star: Marcelo Bosch

Saracens have announced the signing of Argentina and former Biarritz international centre Marcelo Bosch.

Bosch has joined the Aviva Premiership outfit after playing for his country in The Rugby Championship.

The 29 year-old was unveiled on Wednesday when he joined up with his new teammates, and the tough tackling centre says he's delighted to have joined the Premiership leaders.

"I'm very happy to be here and I'm very excited" said Bosch.

"My first impression of Saracens is that I'm really impressed with the club.

"I had the opportunity of seeing the match last Friday in Ireland with a few of the players who weren't playing on the night and I really enjoyed it. Everyone has been welcoming since I've arrived, they are treating me really well and have been very kind with me.

"It's a good challenge for me. After seven years of living in France and playing in the Top 14 I've made the change to the Premiership and it's great to playing in the Heineken Cup - it's very exciting for me and I'm delighted to be here."

Bosch was quite literally unveiled in front of his team-mates, as you can see below:
