Northampton Saints have confirmed that back-row Tom Wood has signed a new deal with the Club.
The 32-year-old pulled on the famous Black, Green and Gold jersey for the 180th time in Saturday’s resounding victory over Sale Sharks, and is now set to press on towards a double-century of Saints appearances after putting pen to paper on a contract extension.
Now in his ninth year at Franklin’s Gardens, Wood initially joined the Club in 2010 from Worcester Warriors and was named Premiership Player of the Season in his debut campaign.
But the best was yet to come as Wood skippered Northampton to a Premiership and European Challenge Cup double success in 2013-14, scoring the decisive try in the league semi-finals against Leicester Tigers to etch his name permanently into Saints folklore.
Wood, a bona fide Club legend, will now remain at the Gardens for at least the 2019/20 season and he is hoping to help thrust the side back into contention for major honours.
