Born in Kettering and a product of the Saints Academy, Alex Waller made his first senior appearance in a Northampton Saints shirt in 2009 as he debuted from the bench against Ospreys.
The former Wellingborough School student has since developed into a Club legend, becoming just the 24th Saint to make 300 appearances since records began in 1895 when he reached that milestone against Wasps in 2021.
The loosehead prop holds the Premiership record for most consecutive appearances in league history; His streak saw him star in Premiership and European matches across a number of seasons, taking a leading role in the run to the 2011 Heineken Cup final and the historic Premiership and Challenge Cup double in 2014 – with the prop scoring the winning extra-time try against Saracens to seal Saints' first-ever Premiership title.
Waller took on co-captaincy of the Club ahead of the 2018/19 season and went on to hold that role for three years, lifting the Premiership Rugby Cup aloft in front of a packed-out cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens during that first campaign.
Waller has also earned international recognition, making his debut for England Saxons against Irish Wolfhounds in January 2014 and earning his second cap the following week against Scotland A – this call-up was his first inclusion in any of England’s representative sides.
While uncapped at senior level, Waller has represented England in a tour match against the Crusaders, in New Zealand, in the summer of 2014 and against the Barbarians at Twickenham in May 2015.
