Ethan Grayson became the third Saint in his family after signing on full-time with Saints’ Senior Academy in the summer of 2020.
A part of Saints' Academy set-up for all of his junior career, Grayson featured at both fly-half and centre during his development but – unlike father Paul and elder brother James – Ethan's physicality settled him into the midfield where he caught the eye for both Northampton School for Boys and Old Northamptonians in recent years.
Featuring for Saints' Under-18s through the 2019/20 season, Grayson donned the Black, Green and Gold for the 2019 Premiership Rugby 7s before signing his first professional contract with Northampton ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.
He was capped by England Under-18s in South Africa during the summer of 2019 and was selected again by the Red Rose before the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic unfortunately saw the side’s summer schedule cancelled.
And Grayson would make his senior debut in a Saints shirt during the 2021/22 season, debuting against London Irish in the Premiership Rugby Cup that term.
