Ed Prowse was actually released by Northampton Saints Academy in 2019 and plied his trade at Coventry, on-loan at Kettering RFC and Loughborough University.
But the tighthead prop also impressed on several outings for Northampton Wanderers during the 2019/20 season, catching the eye of Saints’ ead of Academy, Mark Hopley, leading to him signing on full-time with the Senior Academy in the summer of 2020.
“Ed’s a young prop who now has experience of adult rugby, and obviously he’s had opportunities with the Wandies too and done well,” said Hopley. “He’s still very raw but has a lot of potential and for a big guy he’s actually very skilful, which really fits the mould of what we’re looking to bring through in that space.
“He’s not had the easiest route, but he’s gone away and worked hard to better himself, which says a lot about his character.”
