Saracens handed Daly boost
Elliot Daly has given Saracens a boost ahead of next season after revealing he will stay with the club despite relegation.
The future of several Saracens players is up for debate after it was confirmed the reigning English and European champions will be relegated from the Premiership in June as punishment for repeatedly breaching the £7million wage cap for player wages.
A number of the club's England internationals have been tipped to leave Allianz Park although Sarries have received assurances from the Lions and England that competing in the Championship will not harm the ambitions of their internationals.
In a big boost ahead of the next campaign, Red Rose hooker Jamie George recently revealed he will not be leaving and Daly, who is in his debut season with Saracens, appears to have followed suit.
"Yeah I reckon I'll stay, pretty similar to Jamie. I am still in contract," he was quoted as saying by Planet Rugby. "We have the rest of the season to sort it out. At the moment, I'm just thinking about the next couple of games with England and then when I get back to Saracens, we'll start talking about next year."
