He played for Saracens, having joined them in the 2009/10 season, and played until the end of the 2015/16 season. The back row quickly earned a reputation as one of the toughest tacklers in the English Premiership following his arrival midway through the 2009/10 season – being named the Saracens Player of the Year in 2010/11.[1]. He retired from professional rugby at the end of the 2015/2016 season.
