England winger Elliot Daly secures his future, signs two-year contract

Saracens have just dropped a bombshell by revealing that Elliot Daly has inked a fresh two-year deal with the club. The 31-year-old, a stalwart in the national rugby scene for the past decade, has committed his future to the StoneX Stadium until at least the culmination of the 2025/26 season.

Daly, known for his versatility across the field, first joined the Sarries ranks back in 2019 and has since racked up an impressive 64 appearances for the team. His crowning moment came during last season’s Premiership triumph, where his crucial try helped seal the victory over Sale Sharks in a nail-biting Final at Twickenham.

With a formidable track record both on home soil and on the international stage, Daly’s resume speaks volumes. Prior to his tenure in North London, he notched up a staggering 193 appearances for Wasps, showcasing his prowess whether stationed on the wing, in the center, or at full-back.

On the global front, Daly boasts an impressive tally of 65 England caps spread across two World Cups, in addition to shining on two electrifying British and Irish Lions tours in both New Zealand and South Africa.

Clearly thrilled about extending his stay at StoneX, Daly is primed and ready for the next chapter of his rugby journey.

“Saracens is a special club and we have made some incredible memories over the last few years. With the squad we have I believe there is so much to be excited about and I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Director of Rugby Mark McCall is delighted that Daly has committed to the club.

“We are thrilled that Elliot has extended his stay at the club. His influence on and off the field is growing all the time and he will be a key figure for us going forward and a huge help to our younger players who will benefit greatly from his experience and rugby IQ.

Elliot is, on the one hand, hugely driven and competitive, always looking for ways to improve and, on the other, someone who lifts the environment and those around him with his enthusiasm, positivity and energy. We are lucky to have him.”
