- DOB11 Jul 1986
Making the trip to Northampton Saints from French side Agen, Api Ratuniyarawa arrived at Franklin's Gardens during the 2016/17 season.
His superb ball-carrying and deft offloading soon saw him become a favourite among Saints supporters, and his his efforts during the 2017/18 term earned him the Club's 'Breakthrough Player of the Year' award.
An experienced lock on the international stage, Ratuniyarawa racked up 50 appearances in Black, Green and Gold the following term as Chris Boyd's men reached the knock-out stages of every senior competition – lifting the Premiership Rugby Cup on home soil along the way.
And after making 17 appearances during 2019/20 season, the Fijian's 17 further appearances the following term saw Ratuniyarawa hit a century of games for Saints.
Ratuniyarawa also featured regularly with the Flying Fijians, earning over 30 caps for his country so far and featuring at two Rugby World Cups (England 2015 and Japan 2019).
His 20th cap saw him line up against fellow and former Saints teammates Dylan Hartley, Courtney Lawes, and Teimana Harrison, as England took on Fiji in 2016.
