- DOB12 Feb 1992
Former British Army lock Lewis Bean signed on with Northampton Saints during the summer of 2019 after trialling with the Club during the 2018/19 season.
Rifleman Bean went on two tours of Afghanistan – serving in Helman Province and Kabul – during his time in the military services, but also worked his way up through the Army’s age-grade teams and featured in the 100th anniversary match between the Army and Navy at Twickenham in 2017.
The 129kg lock balanced his military career while playing for Moseley in National One, before going on loan to Worcester Warriors at the start of the 2018/19 season and featuring for the Sixways outfit in the Gallagher Premiership.
From there he landed his switch to Northampton, turning out first for Wanderers before signing a permanent deal and donning the Black, Green and Gold to earn a full debut against Sale Sharks in the 2019/20 Premiership Rugby Cup.
At the start of the 2020/21 season, Bean joined Glasgow Warriors for a month-long loan before retuning to Franklin's Gardens in December.
