Northampton Saints have confirmed that loosehead prop Ethan Waller will rejoin the Gallagher Premiership club ahead of the 2022/23 season.

The 29-year-old will be heading to Franklin's Gardens after being part of Worcester Warriors since 2017 and has racked up over 100 appearances for them.

A product of Northampton Academy, Waller made his senior debut in 2012 and was part of club’s double league and cup-winning campaign of 2013/14, making 15 Premiership appearances. He also had loan stints with Coventry and Moseley.

“I’m absolutely delighted to be returning to my hometown Club at what is a really exciting time with Phil Dowson and Sam Vesty – two coaches I know well – taking the lead next season," he told the club's official website.

“I’ve loved my opportunity at Worcester and will be forever grateful for the chance they took on me, but now definitely feels like the right time to come home.

“I’m returning a better rugby player, a better bloke, and I’m really looking forward to being back at Franklin’s Gardens week in, week out.

“I have supported Saints since I was a kid, and so to run out in Black, Green and Gold again will be a huge moment for me and my family.

"I’m focused on finishing the season strongly with Warriors but I’m excited to head back to Northampton this summer to hopefully help the team win some silverware in the years ahead.”

Northampton are positioned ninth in the Gallagher Premiership table with eight wins from 16 games.
