2007 World Cup

Saracens have appointed England international centre Brad Barritt as club captain.

The club announced Barritt, 29, will take over from lock Alistair Hargreaves to skipper the reigning English and European champions next season.

Barritt led Saracens to a domestic and European double last term, with Hargreaves sidelined for much of the campaign through injury, and he now takes the job on a permanent basis.

“Throughout Brad’s time at the club, he has shown exceptional leadership qualities and he is ideally qualified to be our captain,” Saracens rugby director Mark McCall said.

“Brad is someone who leads through example — through his actions, attitude and application.

“He is one of the most competitive players I have ever come across, showing complete commitment to the game, and is a role model professional. He is a natural leader.”
