Workaholic flanker Calum Clark heads into his fifth season with the Saints in 2014/15 having already cracked a century of appearances in black, green and gold.
At just 19-years-old, Calum became the youngest forward to appear in the Premiership with former club Leeds.
The back row’s international honours stretch from Under-18, through the age groups and up to England Saxons, who he would captain in January 2014 for their game against Irish Wolfhounds.
During his first season at the club, at the age of just 21, Calum led the Saints out against Saracens in the LV= Cup and at the end of the season was named Young Player of the Season for 2010/11 having started both the Heineken Cup final and Premiership semi-final.
That was a season in which he made more appearances than any other Saints player, turning out 35 times across all competitions and equally comfortable in both the second and back rows.
Since then, open-side has become Calum’s forte, a blend of dogged and relentless work at the breakdown only surpassed by his unparalleled tackle rate (he made 97% of over 200 tackles in 2013/14).
A regular in England senior squads, Calum will be looking to build upon his recent success with both club and country in the aim of pushing up to the England 1st XV.
