Northampton Saints have announced that Teimana Harrison has signed a contract extension which will see him stay at Franklin’s Gardens until at least 2022.

The 26-year-old New Zealand-born back rower first arrived in Northampton back in 2011, but has gone on to make 120 appearances in Black, Green and Gold so far and earned five Test caps for England in 2016.

He's the ninth Saint to re-sign for the Club in recent weeks.

I’m over the moon to sign on again with Saints and excited about the progress we’ve made this first season under Chris Boyd.

Teimana is a really important signing; he’s been one of the Club’s most consistent performers in recent years, and this season so far has been no different.
