Northampton Saints are set to make an audacious bid to sign one of England’s hottest young talents in Alex Dombrandt, according to The Rugby Paper.
The robust 22-year-olf back-rower was one of the eye-catching performers in the Premiership last season for Harlequins and was part of Eddie Jones preliminary Rugby World Cup squad.
Dombrandt, who is nicknamed ‘the dominator’ is a ferocious ball carrier who can certainly score tries, touching down 11 times in 24 outings last term.

Saints boss Chris Boyd is looking to sign some of the leagues best young talents as he looks to transform his ageing squad into genuine Premiership contenders.
Neil Fissler has also now reported on more than one occasion that Northampton is keen to bring in England U20 lock Joel Kpoku from Saracens, which continues this way of thinking.
