Alex Waller earned his place in the hearts of Wanderers fans when he burst from a ruck to score a spectacular try in the home leg of the 2009 Guinness 'A' League final. His outings in the Wanderers were also supplemented by regular appearances for Rugby Lions in National League Three South.
A former Junior Saint, Waller is also a record-breaker after helping Northampton Rowing Club smash the 100,000-metre relay for 18-year-olds in July 2008.
Early 2011 proved to be the loose head's first-team breakthrough period as he emereged as a genuine competitor for Soane Tonga'uiha's number 1 shirt, making 19 appearances and scoring his maiden try on his first Premiership start at Gloucester in April.
It is a pace Alex maintained in 2011/12 and right through to the end of 2012/13 - named Saints' Young Player of the Season in 2012 and extending a remarkable run that has seen him involved in every Saints game since the 2011 Heineken Cup final.
