Saints seal deal for Naiyaravoro

13th February 2018, 18:04 by Aidan Perkins

Australia international Taqele Naiyaravoro will join Northampton Saints next season from Waratahs, it's been announced.

The winger, who had a spell playing for Glasgow Warriors in 2015, will leave Waratahs at the end of the 2018 Super Rugby season and make the move to Franklin's Gardens.

Northampton's technical coaching consultant Alan Gaffney believes Naiyaravoro will be a big hit next season and is looking forward to seeing him develop.

"Taqele is an immense talent and we feel that he can really fulfil his sizeable potential at Saints," he said.

"He clearly boasts the physical attributes to cause teams a lot of problems in the Aviva Premiership and in Europe and he showed that during his time with Glasgow."
