Plymouth Albion have strengthened their squad by signing 23 year old hooker Jared Saunders from Premiership side Saracens.

South African born Saunders has joined Albion on loan until the end of the season but he can be recalled at any time by Saracens.

Saunders who stands 6′ and weighs 103 kgs originally joined Saracens as a prop but was converted into a hooker last season.

Speaking about the signing of Saunders, Albion head coach James Shanahan said, “I have known Jared from my time at Old Albanian and also with Hertfordshire.”

“He is a physical and dynamic player and has Premiership experience. Due to injury we were down to one hooker last weekend and it was vital that we added to our squad.’

Saunders is likely to go straight into Albion’s squad for this weekends game against Jersey at Brickfields.
