Transfer Rumours | International scrum-half set to join Saracens

Ireland international Kieran Marmion has played all of his professional rugby for Connacht in the Pro 14, but a change looks to be on the horizon.

A report from the  Irish Independent has revealed that the Connacht and Irish scrum-half has become a target for European champions Saracens.

Despite being involved with the Irish set-up throughout the four-year World Cup cycle, the 27-year-old was a notable omission in Ireland’s 31-man World Cup squad this year, as was the case in 2015.

Therefore it’s likely Marmion may take up an offer to play under Mark McCall. That Marmion’s late father, Mick, played for the London-based outfit may work in their favour.

England international Richard Wigglesworth, who is now 36, is currently Saracens’ first-choice scrum-half.
