Donna Rose and Alex Ellis sign on for 22/23
Saracens is pleased to announce that two more players have signed new deals for the 2022/23 campaign.
Props Alex Ellis and Donna Rose, who are both on International duty preparing for the upcoming Rugby World Cup in New Zealand have both committed to another year with the Women in Black.
Rose, who had a breakthrough season with her country as she showed her quality for Wales throughout the Six Nations, now has 33 appearances for Sarries and will be eyeing up the half century in the coming months.
Ellis is a hugely popular member of the group and her influence in the front-row was clear for all to see en route to the Allianz Premier 15s success.
Head Coach Alex Austerberry says this is another significant piece of recruitment for the new season.
“Alex Ellis has really developed in to an influential and highly impactful player in her time at Saracens. It has been great to see her playing regularly and her hard work is certainly paying off with her game going from strength to strength. I am delighted that Alex has extended her deal at the club as she is a great player with bags of potential and a driver of culture off the field.
Donna is a ball of energy and promotes positivity wherever she is. Fantastic to work with, hard working, eager to learn and tough. Since joining Saracens and making the positional switch to front row, Donna has not taken a backward step. It is indicative of who she is, embracing any challenge, making the most of every opportunity and giving it her all to maximise her talent. I look forward to seeing where that can take Donna and Saracens over the next few seasons.”
