Player Biog

There are few lineouts in Europe that can match up to the Saints’ and that is thanks in no small part to the work of set-piece guru Christian Day.

A measure of the second row’s importance to the Saints’ double winning campaign was the recognition of his peers as he picked up the Players’ Player of the Year in 2013/14 and this season will be his seventh at Franklin’s Gardens after he signed a new deal.

A former England Under-21 captain, Christian joined the Saints from Stade Francais, where he had a short-term contract following seven years at Sale Sharks.

He quickly became a first team regular at the Gardens and appeared in the European Challenge Cup final of 2009, as well as the 2011 Heineken Cup and 2012 LV= Cup finals.

Nicknamed ‘The Tower’ in succession to Wade Dooley, another Blackpool born lock, Chris chose a career in rugby rather than undertaking a degree at Oxford University.

He is yet to make a first team England start, but was part of the England U21 Grand Slam winning side in 2003/4 and had previously appeared for England U16s, U18s and U19s.

Christian featured in both of the Saints’ victorious 2014 finals, lifting the Premiership trophy for the second time after being part of the Sharks side who won the title back in 2006.
