Saracens have announced Juan Figallo and Duncan Taylor have extended their contracts at the club until the summer of 2021.

The 30-year-old has made 88 appearances for Sarries since joining from Montpellier four seasons ago.

“I’m really happy to stay,” he told Saracens.com.

“I’ve played four seasons here and I’ve really enjoyed myself.

“My family came here as two; I got married just before I came here and now we have two kids and we’re living the Sarries life. We really love it.”

“Juan has contributed enormously in his four years at the club,” director of rugby Mark McCall said.

Scotland centre Taylor, 28, has played 113 times since his debut in 2011.

“Duncan’s a brilliant player who will continue to improve and get better.”

The 24-time capped Argentina international famously raced back from the hospital following the birth of his baby boy to play for the Men in Black against Gloucester in February 2016 – such is his commitment to the Wolfpack.

During his career Figallo has forged himself the reputation as one of the finest scrummagers in World Rugby.

A family man, Figallo, his wife and two children have found home at Saracens, one of the reasons the forever-smiling tighthead prop is pleased to prolong his stay in north London.
