    Waratahs wing heading north to Europe

    2018-06-12 11:26

    Cape Town - Northampton Saints have announced that Australian and Waratahs wing Andrew Kellaway will join the Premiership club for the 2018/19 season.

    The 22-year-old comes to Northampton from Super Rugby, having made 22 appearances in the competition so far for the 'Tahs.

    Contracted to the New South Wales Country Eagles, Kellaway has made a name for himself as one of the rising stars of Australian rugby after representing his country at schoolboys and U20s level.

    He showed off prolific finishing ability at the World Rugby U20s Championship in 2014, breaking a try-scoring record for a single tournament previously held by Julian Savea and Zac Guildford after crossing the whitewash ten times in five matches.

    Kellaway, who is equally comfortable at fullback, made his Super Rugby debut for the Waratahs in 2016 and also featured for the Barbarians in their 2017 clash against the Classic Wallabies.

    And the starlet is looking forward to linking up with the rest of Saints’ squad later this summer.

    “Getting the chance to join Northampton Saints was a really exciting opportunity for me and one I jumped at,” said Kellaway.

    “The club has a great history of success and their ambition is clear to see with Chris Boyd and the new coaching set-up coming in this summer, as well as the number of top-quality players also joining the club next year.

    “I’m excited to get going and to pull on the Black, Green and Gold jersey for the first time.”
