Rugby Union – Boyd delighted to add Isiekwe to Saints squad

Northampton's director of rugby Chris Boyd is excited to see what Nick Isiekwe can bring to the Saints next season. It was announced on Thursday that Saracens lock Isiekwe had signed a new four-year deal with the Premiership champions but will join Northampton on loan for the 2020-21 season. Isiekwe, who can play at lock or in the back row, has played 86 games for Sarries in all competitions and appeared in both the Premiership and European Champions Cup finals last season, while also winning three caps for England. Speaking to the Northampton Chronicle, Saints chief Boyd said he was delighted to secure the services of the rising star for next season. "He is still a young player but will bring significant Premiership, European and Test experience, as well as some real power, to our pack." Meanwhile, England are 7/2 with bet365 to win the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
