Ollie Hoskins signs for Saracens
Saracens is delighted to announce the signing of Ollie Hoskins on a two-year deal.
The tighthead prop joins after a seven-year spell at London Irish, and the 30-year-old will begin pre-season with the Men in Black in the coming weeks.
The Australian international had been with the Exiles since 2016 and made 164 appearances for them, meaning he brings plenty of experience to StoneX.
The 128kg prop started his career in Super Rugby with Western Force before moving to England, and he now adds further depth to the tighthead department with the likes of Marco Riccioni, Alec Clarey and Christian Judge.
Hoskins is thrilled to be making the move to North London.
“I’m incredibly excited to start this new chapter in my career. The last month has been chaotic, emotional and stressful for me and my wife, so I am really grateful for the opportunity to represent Saracens, and hopefully add something to the already world-class environment.
Everyone I have spoken to throughout this process have been super supportive, and I’m motivated to throw myself into pre-season and become a better player, it is an exciting challenge.
Lastly, I want to thank London Irish for the last seven years. It’s been heartbreaking to go through this period, as the club was filled with genuinely incredible people both on and off the field. They shaped me into the player and man I am today, and I wouldn’t be in this position without them. So to all those who’ve been involved with London Irish over my career there, thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Director of Rugby Mark McCall is pleased to welcome Hoskins to StoneX Stadium.
“We are delighted to welcome Ollie to our club. He is a very experienced Premiership player and will add important depth to our front row options.”
