Transfer News: Saracens sign Springbok playmaker

Saracens have announced the signing of Damian Willemse to the club on a short-term deal.

The South African fly-half, who can also play centre and full-back, joins the Men in Black from Super Rugby franchise the Stormers as cover for injured duo Alex Goode (foot) and Max Malins (broken foot).

Having come through the Western Province ranks, Willemse was included in the Stormers squad for the 2017 season just months after finishing school at Paul Roos Gymnasium.

He made his debut for the Cape Town outfit aged 18 and has since featured 30 times, accumulating 143 points.

The 21-year-old’s form was rewarded with an international debut for the Springboks against Argentina in the 2018 Rugby Championship and he has since earned a further four caps.
