Cape Town - English club Saracens have appointed former Springbok and Sharks lock Alistair Hargreaves as their new captain.

Hargreaves, 28, succeeds Steve Borthwick, who retired at the end of the previous European season.

He told Saracens' official website it is a challenge he is looking forward to.


“The captaincy is a fantastic honour and it is a huge responsibility. I’m really looking forward to the challenge - we have a great bunch of players here, with lots of leaders.

“It’s a job I’m thoroughly looking forward to. We’ve got some great guys in the squad, some great characters, and it’s a lot of fun here - I can wait to crack on”.

Hargreaves joined Saracens from the Sharks in 2012. He played four Tests for the Boks in 2010 and 2011.
