Saints pair set for summer exit

17th April 2019, 14:27 by Bobbie Jackson

Andrew Kellaway and Nafi Tuitavake are set to leave Northampton Saints at the end of the 2018-19 season.

Kellaway has scored four tries in 19 games for the Gallagher Premiership outfit since joining from Waratahs last summer.

The 23-year-old's next destination is not known but he has thanked the club for allowing him to experience a "different style".

Kellaway said: "I've had a great time during my year with Saints; I really think this rugby community in Northampton is special and unlike anything else in the world.

"It's been an amazing experience for me coming across the globe to play a completely different style of rugby."

Tuitavake joined Northampton ahead of the 2016-17 campaign but has been restricted to just 32 appearances.

The 30-year-old is hoping to kick start his career elsewhere but insists he will give his all in the remaining fixtures.

"The time has come for me to move on, but for now I'm focused on finishing off the season as strongly as possible," Tuitavake said.
