Signed in the summer of 2012, 24-year-old centre Luther has certainly packed a punch in the Saints midfield, with his 6’ 3”, 104kg frame allied to plenty of pace and power.
Huddersfield-born Luther made his senior rugby debut for Leeds aged just 19, and went on to make 41 appearances for the club. His rugby development was aided by several spells on loan to Championship clubs, including Sedgley Park, for whom Burrell played against the Saints in 2007/08.
In all Burrell, who has also played rugby league for Huddersfield and trained with Leeds Rhinos, spent four seasons at Headingley before moving over the Pennines to Sale Sharks in 2011.
His time at the Gardens certainly started with a bang, Luther crossing in the bonus point wins over Exeter and Worcester and maintaining a healthy scoring record in Saints colours.
