With 20 caps for Wales under his belt, Carre’s expertise as a loosehead prop is undeniable, promising to fortify Saracens’ front-row with his formidable scrummaging skills. Standing tall at 6ft 3” and weighing in at 130kg, his imposing presence is sure to make an impact in North London.

Carre’s resume boasts clashes against heavyweights like Racing 92 in the Investec Champions Cup, alongside regular appearances in the Gallagher Premiership, a testament to his pedigree in the sport.

Having racked up over 50 appearances for Cardiff, his return to Saracens adds another layer of excitement to the squad’s lineup for the upcoming season.

Eager to don the black jersey once more, Carre expresses his gratitude for the opportunity: “I’m thrilled to be back where it all began four years ago, ready to contribute to a squad with sky-high ambitions!”

Director of Rugby, Mark McCall, echoes the sentiment, stating, “We’re delighted to have Rhys back in the fold. At 26, he’s entering his prime, and we’ve witnessed firsthand his immense talent. With more experience under his belt, he’s poised to unleash his full potential with us once again.”
