Chris Wyles Comes Out of Retirement for Saracens

Saracens & Chris Wyles

Chris Wyles has temporarily come out of retirement and contends to face Sale Sharks on Saturday.

Chris Wyles, the 35-year-old former USA Rugby National team captain and member of the 2016 USA Olympic Sevens team, retired at the end of last season. He retired on the top of his game, scoring two tries in Saracens’ Premiership final win over Exeter Chiefs.

This week he answered the Saracens call for his return with Liam Williams and Sean Maitland away on international duty, while David Strettle, Ali Crossdale, Matt Gallagher, Rotimi Segun and Duncan Taylor are missing through injury.

He has trained with the squad this week and will provide cover on the wings against the Sale Sharks.

“It’s a bit surreal but I’m delighted to be back and to have the opportunity to play for Saracens again,” Wyles said. “The possibility of getting back out in front of the Allianz Park crowd and playing in front of the people who have been most supportive of me and Wolfpack is an awesome thought.”

“Don’t miss the Men in Black’s record try scorer in action for what could be the final time at Allianz Park!”
