“Shock departure” – Northampton Saints stalwart confirms move to France

Bayonne have secured the services of Northampton Saints’ formidable second-row, Alex Moon, in a blockbuster move confirmed for the next two seasons.

Bayonne, in their characteristic style, unveiled the signing with flair, dropping the news bomb on their website accompanied by a quirky social media video that added a touch of spice to the announcement.

The web story from Bayonne featured the catchy line, ‘you must always aim for the moon, because even if you fail, you land among the stars.’ It seems Bayonne is reaching for the stars with this latest addition to their squad.

Moon joins the growing list of Northampton Saints players making the leap to France, with the likes of Dan Biggar and David Ribbans being among the recent transplants.

Adding to the intrigue, rumors continue to swirl around Courtney Lawes, another shining star from the Saints roster, as he remains persistently linked with a potential move across the English Channel.
