Socino’s professional club career began in 2010 with Rotherham Titans, before spending a season with French side US Dax, and then, from 2013, returned to England to join Championship club Nottingham Rugby.
In 2014, he joined Newcastle Falcons and made more than 100 appearances before joining Edinburgh for the 2018/19 campaign and then Saracens in 2020/21.
