Rugby: Stevens' new Saracens start

MATT STEVENS says he is relishing a chance to be part of "something special" by relaunching his career with Saracens.

England prop Stevens will join the Guinness Premiership title contenders on 19 January next year.

That is the exact date Stevens is available to play again on completion of a two-year drugs ban following a failed doping test in December 2008., and the former Bath forward said: "I have many great memories and friends in Bath, but there is something special happening at Saracens and I am very eager to be part of it."

Stevens, 27, resigned from Bath last March following the drugs revelations. He had a four-year deal with the club believed to be worth around 1million.
