Northampton Saints signed England lock Nick Isiekwe on a year-long loan deal for the end of the delayed 2019-20 season and entirety of the 2020/21 campaign.
The 21-year-old arrived at Franklin’s Gardens from Saracens, where he came through the Academy and made his debut back in 2016, before earning his first international cap less than a year later on the Red Rose’s tour of Argentina.
Isiekwe, who is also capable of playing in the back row, has already built up considerable experience at the highest level of club rugby despite his young age.
The 6’7”, 119kg forward already has over 50 Gallagher Premiership appearances under his belt for Saracens, as well as appearing in the 2019 Heineken Champions Cup final.
