Saracens close in on Etzebeth

Eben Etzebeth is expected to take up a three-month contract at English club Saracens following the Springboks' tour in November.

The European Cup and Premiership champions are interested in signing the Bok lock on a short-term contract. Etzebeth is set to join Saracens for three months, and then return to the Stormers in February.

Saracens lock Alistair Hargreaves, another South African and a former Bok second rower, was recently forced to retire due to a concussion.
