- DOB21 Mar 1998
Former Felsted School student Ehren Painter was previously a member of Saints Junior Academy and broke into the first team towards the end of the 2017/18 season.
Prior to becoming a member of the Saints Senior Academy, Painter played rugby for South Woodham Ferrers RFC and Chelmsford Rhinos.
Born in London, Painter has also represented England at age-grade level. Having played for England Under-16s, Ehren went on to represent England Under-17s in 2015 and England Under-18s in 2016.
The World Rugby Under-20s Championships were where Painter’s international career would take him next as he was called up by England for the tournament in France in the summer of 2018.
Painter made several appearances for the Wanderers in the run up to his first-team debut against Saracens in April 2018, lifting the Premiership Rugby A League title the same month.
And the gifted scrummager made a phenomenal impact in his first few Premiership encounters, notably shoving the Tigers’ pack backwards in the closing stages at Welford Road to help Saints secure a first league double over Leicester in over a decade.
