Saracens have continued their summer squad strengthening by adding Western Force prop Kieran Longbottom.

Longbottom, 28, joins from the the Super XV side after spending six years with the Perth side.

Director of rugby, Mark McCall, told the club's website: “We are delighted that Kieran and Brigitta have decided to come to London.

"He has shown up consistently well in our scouting reports, and he will prove an outstanding addition to the squad.”

Longbottom added: “Saracens are recognised as one of the go-forward clubs in Europe, and I’m really looking forward to this opportunity.”

The Perth-born prop is eligible to play for England but has yet to make his international debut.

Sarries have already added Jim Hamilton, Juan Figallo and Mike Ellery to their squad ahead of the new season.
