LEAVING: (L to R) Tim Streather has penned a deal Saracens, while Nic Rouse and Matt Parr join London Irish.

Streather, 24, has penned a deal with Premiership leaders Saracens, while front five forwards Parr, 30, and Rouse, 31, have signed with top-flight club London Irish.

Head coach Martin Haag, who signed a two-year contract extension with the Meadow Lane club last week, said: "It is always sad to see players go, but Nic, Matt and Tim have done a tremendous amount for this club over a number of years.

"All three have fitted into the ethos and shown the character of a Nottingham player.

"They have been a big part of the team this season, putting us in a great position to challenge for premiership promotion and I know they are going to continue to perform at their best for as long as they wear Nottingham Rugby's colours.

"They should be congratulated for what they've put into this club and we wish them the very best in the future."

Parr, who has made 153 appearances in all competitions over two spells with Nottingham after first joining the club in 2006, said: "I've had a great time at Nottingham, and it really has been a home away from home for me.

"When an opportunity like this comes along, the chance to play at the highest level, it's not something I could turn down.

"My focus right now is on playing for the Green and Whites because we still have a job to do and we are all determined to go as far as we can this season."

Rouse echoed his teammate's sentiment: "It's sad to be leaving Nottingham, a club that I've played more than 150 games for over a number of years.

"It was a tough decision to sign with another club, but this opportunity is simply too big and not something I wanted to live to regret if I didn't take it.

"This season has been tremendous for Nottingham and that is where the interest from Irish has come from. Working under Martin Haag this season has been great and has really helped me lift my game to that next level. I also have fitness and conditioning coach Jo Brun and the physio team headed by Matt Taylor to thank for the work they have done to help me get into the best shape of my career."

Streather, who has made 88 appearances in all competitions since joining the club in 2009, said: "I've thoroughly enjoyed my four seasons here and I've got a lot to thank Nottingham for. The club gave me the chance and showed faith in me to play games week in and week out and I wouldn't be in the position to be moving on to Saracens without the Green and Whites.

"Right now my only focus is playing for Nottingham and making this season a truly memorable one."
