La Rochelle and France prop Uini Antonio could be on the way to the Premiership after attracting interest from European champions Saracens, according to a report in The Rugby Paper this morning.
The New Zealand born tighthead has been plying his trade in France since 2011, becoming eligible for the national side through residency rules.
He is the second heaviest man to play international rugby, weighing in at a whopping 155kg. His current contract with La Rochelle expires at the end of the current season.
