Fiji international Ma’afu followed in his brother Salesi’s footsteps to join the Club and made his Saints debut against Harlequins three seasons ago.
He notched up his 50th cap for Fiji during his time at Franklin’s Gardens, and as well as starring for the first team this term, was involved in the Wanderers’ Premiership Rugby A League triumph last season – defeating Gloucester United in the final to claim the title.
“To be able to run out in front of the crowd at Franklin’s Gardens has been a great experience, and I’m proud to have played for a great Club in Saints,” said Ma’afu.
“I want to thank the supporters here in Northampton for always getting behind me, and I wish the rest of the squad and the coaches the very best for the future.”
