- DOB6 Sep 1996
Beginning his rugby career at St Joseph’s College in Ipswich, Alex Moon studied at Sedbergh School before linking up with Saints’ Senior Academy at the start of the 2015/16 season.
With his father Jon a former coach of Ipswich RFC, uncle Steve a rugby league player for Bradford bulls, and auntie Vickie a physiotherapist at Yorkshire Carnegie and Leeds Rhinos, it was no surprise that Moon became a professional player.
Making his senior debut for Saints in 2016, Moon helped the Wanderers to lift the Premiership Rugby A League trophy in 2017 and 2018 before breaking into the first-team setup in 2018/19.
Making 18 appearances in Black, Green and Gold in Chris Boyd’s first season in charge, the towering lock made his Premiership debut against Wasps in November – and after subsequently signing his first senior contract with the Club, Moon scored his first Saints try in the European Challenge Cup quarter-final at Clermont Auvergne.
