Northampton Saints have confirmed that centres Andrew Kellaway and Nafi Tuitavake will exit the Gallagher Premiership club at the end of the ongoing season.

Kellaway joined Northampton Saints after making his professional rugby debut with National Rugby Championship side New South Wales and played in Super Rugby for Waratahs between 2015 and 2018 and has played for the Franklin's Gardens' outfit 19 times.

“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," he told the official website of the club.

“It’s been an amazing experience for me coming across the globe to play a completely different style of rugby, and I’ll remember the feeling of running out in front of an amazing crowd at Franklin’s Gardens with huge fondness.”

Meanwhile, Tonga international Tuitavake played for Crusaders and Agen before joining Northampton Saints in 2016 and has 32 appearances to his name.

“I’m really proud to have played for a great Club in Northampton Saints and I want to thank all the supporters here at Franklin’s Gardens for their encouragement over the last three seasons,” said Tuitavake.

“The time has come for me to move on, but while I wish the rest of the squad and the coaches the very best for the future, for now I’m focused on finishing off the season as strongly as possible.”

Northampton Saints are positioned sixth in the Gallagher Premiership table with nine wins from 19 games.
