Northampton Saints full-back George Furbank becomes the latest player to pen a new contract with the Gallagher Premiership club.

Furbank graduated from Huntingdon RFC and Saints’ Academy system and was awarded his first senior contract ahead of the 2019/20 season.

The 27-year-old has racked up 110 appearances for the Saints and his consistent performances for the club saw him make his Test debut for England in the 2020 Six Nations.

“I am thrilled to be extending my contract with the Club that I’ve been supporting since I was a young lad,” he told the club's official website.

“From progressing through the Academy here at Saints, to playing my 100th game in Black, Green and Gold, it’s been a true honour to do what I love whilst also representing Northampton – and I am grateful that is set to continue.

“My decision to stay here was an easy one, and a large part of that is because of the group of players and staff we have at the Club. Every day I find myself both working hard and having a laugh with some of my best mates, and I am lucky enough to call that my job.

“The coaching team have cultivated an environment which consistently pushes us to develop, and that has moulded me into the player I have become. I have loved becoming a leader in this squad, alongside a lot of lads who I have grown up playing with, and I feel there are exciting things to come for us."

Northampton are at the top of the Gallagher Premiership table with seven wins from 10 matches.
