Saracens have confirmed their squad for the remainder of the season and the Championship next year following their automatic relegation from the Premiership as a result of salary cap breaches.
The reigning Premiership and European champions have lost 15 key senior players, with nine leaving on permanent deals and a further six leaving on loan until the start of the 2021/22 season. It will be 17 when Brad Barritt and Richard Wigglesworth leave at the end of the current season.
The likes of George Kruis (Panosonic Wild Knights), Will Skelton (La Rochelle) and Ben Spencer (Bath) have all left the club on permanent deals, with Alex Lozowski (Montpellier), Ben Earl (Bristol Bears) and Nick Isiekwe (Northampton Saints) among those to leave on loan.
The club, however, has managed to retain their England World Cup stars with Maro Itoje, Owen Farrell, Billy and Mako Vunipola, Jamie George and Elliot Daly all committing their future.
