Only signed for Saracens in January this year until next year but has already just signed a 2 year contract extension! That's the good news..... The bad news is that by the look of his Facebook page he's in hospital with the ubiquitous Saracens number 8 injury........ A broken arm!

Speedy recovery!

Wish we could have accommodated Duane Vermeulen, but it appears he's signed for a Japanese club.

I'd much rather a player like Vailanu who (when not injured) will offer Sarries the direct running they need but not at a huge cost. Also potentially if he does well Sarries have a better chance of hanging onto him in a couple of seasons time rather than seeing him leave to go back to a "home" club.

Along with Tolofua I think those are two non-EQPs who have the potential to be excellent players and both look to be the result of good scouting rather than hugely deep pockets/

Our back row has taken a battering last season with long term injuries to Billy, Burger, Clark, Conlon, Rhodes and Vailanu.
I'm just looking forward to a situation of being able to choose again and to that end Vailanu makes a valuable contribution. In the brief spells we have seen him his wrecking ball runs have been a joy to watch.

Are we going to end up with 2 x No 8s out injured until October/November if SV and Billy both have broken arms?

Jim 55 we are used to that situation unfortunately, at least Jackson Wray will not let us down as a no8.

Has his extension been reported anywhere? I can't find any info on it other than when he signed for 18 months in Jan. The club seems to be random with which players they announce!

Yep. Reported here in the OP smiling smiley

I saw it on his own FB page so we can only assume it's true.

It's true, I believe Sione said himself he signed a contract extension and our official Saracens Twitter have also mentioned it along with other social media avenues, I also meant to say, this is great news for Saracens as when Fit he is a fantastic player

Is that a 2 year extension to the end of 2021?

I donít disbelieve it, I just canít find anything about it online. Iím obviously not looking in the right places, because Iíve searched social media, and the only twitter mentions I can find is his original contract. Itís excellent news, Iím just not sure why the club are unable to publise these things.

I hope he gets more game time this season, as he looks an absolute wrecking ball.

Barty his original contract was 18 months from January this year taking him up to the end of the 18/19 season. His post said an extra two years. I would wait until the club confirm, however as others have mentioned........ Don't hold your breath!

Yeah, not that I don't trust your knowledge, but maybe I'll just pencil it into my length-of-contract notes for now!
