Northampton Saints second row David Ribbans has become the latest player to commit his future to the club.

The 22-year-old has impressed for the Saints since joining from South African club Western Province last year and was named man of the match in the victory over Bath last month.

Ribbans joins Harry Mallinder in signing a new contract at Franklin's Gardens and his fresh deal will run until 2020.

"I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Saints and am really happy to be staying for another two years,” he said.

“I have settled into the town and the club well and could not have been made to feel more welcome by the supporters, staff and players.

“I’ve also enjoyed my time out on the field. This club has some amazing players and the potential to do some great things. Both individually and as a group there is plenty more to come and I’m looking forward to playing my role in that."
