On leaving the Northampton Saints Paul Grayson said:
I enjoyed myself as a player here, and over the past few years it has been satisfying to have played a part in helping the Saints get back to the top of the club game. I am proud to have been a part of the history of one of the great clubs.
After 19 years at Franklin’s Gardens I need to prioritise my wife and children and make some sacrifices for them. As such I am happy to step away from my role with the club in good health and on the right path, and look forward to exploring the many opportunities that are out there in the world of rugby.
