Tadgh McElroy has joined Saracens and has issued the following statement:

“Just wanted to say I am over the moon to have signed with Saracens for the next year. It was a tough decision to leave Ireland but i know 100% it is the best environment for me to test myself & develop as a player at the moment. 

I want to thank everyone in Dundalk RFC for all the support & coaching over the years and all the underage coaches i have worked with in Leinster Youths, Leinster & at Ireland U20’s. A big thanks to Mike Ruddock and Lansdowne for picking me out of Dundalk and giving me the shot to play AIL rugby. I hope i repaid that faith. 

Finally, a big thank you to my agent Niall Woods who made this happen for me.”
