Not only providing competition in the front row, his experience has proved invaluable to the young players at the club.
Everyone at Saracens would like to wish Joe all the best for the rest of the season and beyond.
The 31-year-old, who described coming on in the Heineken Champions Cup semi-final against Munster as one of his favourite Saracens memories, said: “I’ve made some really fond memories at Saracens. It is a really special group of coaches and players who will remain close friends of mine for years to come.
