Northampton Saints have announced the signing of loose forward Angus Scott-Young from Queensland Reds ahead of the 2022/23 season.

Son of former Wallaby Sam Scott-Young, the 24-year-old made his professional rugby debut with provincial side Queensland Country playing 30 times for them in the National Rugby Championship.

He made his Super Rugby debut for Queensland Reds in 2017 making 61 appearances for them and in the process also was part of their squad that won the Super Rugby AU competition in 2021.

“I’m delighted to sign for Northampton Saints ahead of next season and I’m looking forward to the challenge of playing in the Gallagher Premiership and in Europe,” Scott-Young told the club's official website.

“Saints are on an exciting journey, with a young and talented coaching group who believe in playing a stylish brand of rugby. Speaking to Phil Dowson, I can tell the squad are only looking upwards to challenge for more titles and trophies.

“I really enjoyed testing myself in a new environment in New Zealand last year, and this is a fantastic opportunity for me to improve even further as a player, so I’m really excited for what the future holds at Franklin’s Gardens in the Black, Green and Gold jersey.”

Northampton are positioned fifth in the Gallagher Premiership table with 11 wins from 20 games.
