Signing for Saints at the start of the 2018/19 season, Andy Symons made his debut in the first home match of the season against Harlequins before making his first start two weeks later in Bath – though injury halted his inaugural term in Northampton there.
Symons started out his career with Saracens Amateurs and Old Albanians, but after linking up with the Saracens Academy, a bold move to New Zealand beckoned for his first taste of professional rugby.
After spending a season playing for Tasman in the ITM Cup, Symons then returned to the UK to join Worcester Warriors in 2013 – via Leicester Tigers’ sevens side.
Standing at 6’5” tall, Symons soon made his impression in the Premiership and made over 50 appearances for the Sixways outfit before switching to Gloucester in 2016.
He made a big impact during the 2017-18 season and established himself in the first team at Kingsholm – taking his tally of club caps to 24 and earning himself a switch to Saints during the summer of 2018.
