New deals for four Northampton Saints

Northampton Saints have announced that Harry Mallinder, Tom Collins, Paul Hill and Ahsee Tuala have all signed new deals to remain at Franklin’s Gardens.

The quartet boast just under 400 appearances and 25 seasons at Franklin’s Gardens between them, and director of rugby Chris Boyd is delighted to have secured their services for the foreseeable future.

“We’re absolutely delighted to sign these boys on,” he said. They’re four Saintsmen who’ve been here for a long time, and are all an important part of the fabric of our organisation.

They’ve all played a good chunk for us, but a few of them are still young and they’re all important cogs in our machine.

We’re not completely finished in terms of our recruitment and retention, but we’re getting very close to getting the balance we want.”
