Transfer Rumours: London Irish star set to stay in the Premiership

London Irish star Tom Woolstencroft will definitely be in the Premiership next season.

The hooker is ready to depart the club once the Exiles are relegated, with The Rugby Paper reporting that he’ll along with teammate Alex Lewington be joining back-to-back European champions Saracens.

A World Rugby U20 Championship winner with England in 2014, the 23-year-old launched his career at Bath Rugby where he came through the academy ranks under the watchful eye of former England lock Danny Grewcock.

Making the transition from back row to hooker following advice from Grewcock, Woolstencroft made his senior debut for Bath in the LV= Cup in 2014. The versatile forward was also part of the club’s Premiership Rugby A League-winning side the same year, underlining his growing potential in the game.
