Northampton Saints have announced that centre Matt Proctor has penned a new contract with the Gallagher Premiership club.
Proctor started his professional rugby career with provincial side Wellington in 2012 and went on to make his Super Rugby debut with Hurricanes a year later.
With over 50 Super Rugby appearances to his name, the 29-year-old also went on to win the title with Hurricanes in 2016 under Chris Boyd.
Proctor made switch to Northampton Saints ahead of the 2019/20 season and has gone on to play 41 times for Black, Green and Gold and has become the first player to sign a new contract with the club his season by incoming Director of Rugby Phil Dowson.
“The progress our squad is making is really exciting and I’m very happy to be signing on again with Northampton," he told the club's official website.
“My family and I have settled really well here; that was thanks to being part of a great group of players and families, as well as all the Club’s supporters who have made us feel so welcome – I hope I can repay their faith in me with good performances whenever I pull on the jersey.
“We have a superb training environment at Franklin’s Gardens and a really impressive group of coaches who have all helped me to become a better player since I came over to Northampton. I can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for us.”
Northampton Saints are positioned fifth in the Gallagher Premiership table with seven wins from 12 matches and will face Worcester Warriors on Saturday at Sixways Stadium.
