Sean Maitland

14th Aug 1988 1.89m/101kg Left Wing

Former Crusader Maitland made the conscious decision to up sticks and move halfway across the globe to Scotland in order to further his career on the international stage. Originally from Tokorua in New Zealand, Maitland's form impressed for club and country, becoming an integral part of Glasgow Warriors.

After a stellar 6 nations campaign in 2013, the silky winger was selected to tour Australia with the British and Irish Lions.

In June 2016, Saracens announced to have signed a then 27-year-old Maitland on a two-year deal ahead of the 2016/17 season.

In January 2017, he was included in Scotland's squad to compete in the 2017 Six Nations tournament.

Maitland then put pen to paper on a two-year extension to remain with the Allianz Park outfit until 2020.

In November he was recalled into the Scotland national team for the Test against Australia, and later received a call-up for the 2018 Six Nations tournament.

He cemented his name in Scotland's 31-man squad for the Rugby World Cup in Japan before being included in the nation’s squad for the 2020 Six Nations.

After 73 appearances and 29 tries scored for Saracens, Maitland signed a new two-year deal with the North London club.

He helped Saracens win another Gallagher Premiership final when they played against Sale Sharks. He had a standout season scoring 9 tries, 3 assists and beating 27 defenders as well as a staggering 27 line breaks.
