Northampton Saints can today confirm that loosehead prop Will Davis will join the Club from Ealing Trailfinders at the end of the season.
The 27-year-old has enjoyed four successful seasons with the Greene King IPA Championship club, making over 70 appearances, and will make the step up to Aviva Premiership level at Franklin’s Gardens.
Davis was part of the Ealing side that won promotion after topping the National One table back in 2014/15, and has since gone from strength to strength as the Trailfinders transformed into Championship title contenders.

Now one of the most powerful props in the division, Davis also has experience representing the South West and Gloucestershire having come through the Academy system at hometown club, Bristol Rugby.
And with Saints welcoming a new director of rugby in Chris Boyd in the summer, Davis believes the sky’s the limit for next season for those wearing Black, Green and Gold.
“It’s an honour for me to be joining a Club with so much history at the very highest level like Northampton Saints,” he said.
“I’m fully focused on ending my season strongly with Ealing, but at the same time I’m really excited to join up with my new teammates in the summer and to test myself at the pinnacle of English rugby.
“This is a Club that has aspirations to become one of the very best in Europe, and with the likes of Chris Boyd as director of rugby and internationals like Dan Biggar joining the squad, I am relishing the prospect of being part of it.
“I can’t wait to contribute towards that effort and push for silverware in a Saints jersey.”
