It has finally been revealed where Maro Itoje is playing his rugby next season
England and Saracens lock Maro Itoje seems to have possibly revealed where he will be playing his rugby next season. The England star revealed today.
Rugby Onslaught did some more digging and it looks like there is some seriously concrete evidence from what we have seen.
We are following a report from The Rugby Paper that claimed to know that Maro Itoje is going to spend his future in the Britain despite receiving some lucrative offers from France.
We looked into the reports that the Rugby Paper Neil Fissler made in the article and there is surprisingly no real evidence to suggest that this article is just correct.

We did some digging online, and it appears that Maro Itoje may have let slip that he will not be in fact moving to France despite the numerous reports that the Saracens star was being linked to Racing 92 in Paris.
We saw on “The Rugby Forum” that someone revealed a tweet that Itoje appeared to reply to from a post today.
We could not find the tweet ourselves so it has either been deleted or no longer on his profile.
When players asked whether he would be linked to France, this is what he supposedly replied.
If this tweet is real, then it would suggest that Itoje does in fact want to commit his future to Saracens, despite the fact that they will be playing in the Championship next season.
Itoje featured on “Spilling the T” recently with UK rap artist Tinie Tempah.
With Saracens set for demotion to the Championship for repeated breaches of the Gallagher Premiership salary cap, Racing made a play to bring the England and Lions second row to the Top 14 for a season.
This was despite national team coach Eddie Jones being apparently amenable to allowing his star lock spend a year in the French league and still be available to play for the 2019 World Cup finalists during the 2020/21 Test calendar window.
