Durban - Former Springbok and Sharks lock Alistair Hargreaves has agreed to join Saracens from the start of the 2012/13 Aviva Premiership season.

According to the RugbyWeek website, Hargreaves, 25, played for the Springboks in the 2011 Tri-Nations against the All Blacks and the Wallabies.

Hargreaves said that he was looking forward to joining Saracens as he wants to be part of something special, "Everybody in South African rugby knows there is something special happening at Saracens, and I can't wait to get stuck in and make a contribution to the continuing development of the club.

"This is a fantastic opportunity for me at a crucial stage of my rugby career."

    My family have been avid Sharks supporters for many years, have seen this young man lead SA to victory for the junior Boks and watched him play some excellent rugby. What a loss for South African rugby, he is a born leader and has so much to offer our country! Thankyou Alistair for being a loyal servant to your country, Saracens are lucky to have you! John Plumtree, its time you left so our players can play for the country they love! Good luck Al, you will be back!

    Mandira, must go with you on this one, Plum are chasing away some of our best pleyers, Eugene van Staaden to start with. Pity Alister were so injury prone, we needed him in the lineouts
