"I’m really excited to be joining Saracens Women for the upcoming season. They have had great success in recent years and I’m looking forward to playing alongside so many great players, many of whom I’ve played against in the last year.
“The support they offer players on and off the pitch is brilliant and the opportunity learn from the likes of Rocky Clark is really exciting.”
