Northampton Saints confirms departing players
Monday, May 8, 2017
Northampton Saints has today confirmed the players that are leaving the club at the end of the season.
Each of the dozen players ending their time as Saints at the end of the season received a framed match shirt after the last regular game of the Aviva Premiership season on Saturday, after completing a lap of the pitch in front of supporters at Franklin’s Gardens.
Director of rugby Jim Mallinder paid tribute to the players leaving the club.
“Many of the players who are leaving have played significant parts in what has been a successful decade for us, with senior players like George, Calum and Lee helping us win the Challenge Cup and Aviva Premiership final in 2014,” he said.
“However, all of the players in the squad contribute to the club both on and off the pitch and we wish them all the best for the future.”
