Arriving in Northampton at the start of the 2021/22 season, Springbok wing Courtnall Skosan joined Northampton Saints from Sigma Lions.
The explosive winger has 12 caps for South Africa to his name, as well as over 100 appearances across the Super Rugby and Currie Cup competitions with the Lions.
Growing up in Cape Town, where he was noticed playing Sevens by Springbok legend Chester Williams, Skosan’s break came in Pretoria with the Blue Bulls at the start of his career before making the switch to Johannesburg to play for the Lions in 2014 – winning the Currie Cup one year later, and reaching the Super Rugby final three years running from 2016-2018.
The winger also played for South Africa at the World Rugby Under-20 Championship in 2011, and South Africa ‘A’ in 2016, before his full international debut for the Springboks in 2017.
And Skosan would make his first Saints appearance in 2021, scoring a hat-trick of tries on his debut against Worcester Warriors before adding a further two tries to his tally to following weekend.
