Everyone is talking about this ‘gigantor’ Will Skelton performance
A huge performance from a huge man. Will Skelton was everywhere against Glasgow Warriors, like a man possessed.
Watch the video of Skelton flinging himself around like the man-mountain he is. He’s very strong and no one can deny that.
Skelton has really shone for La Rochelle the last two years and is definitely one of the best locks in world rugby over the last two seasons.
Everyone was sad when he left Saracens.
“It’s pretty sad having to leave a great club and great environment,” said Skelton at the time. “But I’m excited for the journey ahead.
“It’s been a special time here [at Saracens]. From the first day you see how welcoming the boys are, you see first hand the culture that everyone’s talking about.
“I’m extremely grateful to the coaches and players for embracing myself and my wife and welcoming us to such a family.
“I came here wanting to improve and wanting to make an impact on the team and I think I’ve done that.
“I just want to thank all the coaches, the players and the support staff for investing in me and making my time here very special and a memory I’ll never forget.”
Director of Rugby Mark McCall, who was also sad, said: “Will has contributed enormously to our club over the last number of years.
“On the field, under the guidance of our brilliant performance team, he showed great dedication to transform himself physically to allow his incredible talent to be hugely impactful.
“Off the field, he was a very thoughtful, supportive teammate who had the respect of everyone at the club.
“Will and Kate will be greatly missed and we wish them well as they start a new journey in France.”
Watch the vision here. We think you’ll agree it’s excellent.
