Transfer News: Saints sign Fiji-born No.8

Northampton Saints can today announce that No.8 Tui Uru will join the Club’s Academy from Bury St Edmunds for the 2019-20 season.

The 21-year-old Fiji-born back rower has played for the National 2 South side for the last two seasons after making the move from Ipswich in 2017.

Uru is regular member of the Eastern Counties set-up and has also represented England Counties at under-20s level in his fledgling career so far.

“I am delighted to be joining Northampton Saints, and to get the opportunity to develop as a player using the wonderful facilities at Franklin Gardens,” he said.

“It’s clear that Chris Boyd is looking to bring through young players through at the Club which is really exciting to be a part of; and I’m looking forward to working with him and the rest of the squad from the start of pre-season”.
