Northampton have signed newzealand centre Matt Proctor, that will join from summer time from Kiwi club Hurricanes.

The 26-year-old – that is able to also play at wing or full back – functioned under Saints boss Chris Boyd at the franchise, also winning the Super name in 20-16.

Proctor made his Test debut for the All Blacks against Japan in November.

“For along time that I’ve had the dream of analyzing myself in the Eastern Hemisphere, and also for so many reasons Northampton can be just a superb fit,” he explained.

Boyd told that the Northampton website:”Matt is strictly the calibre of player that people want to be attracted to Northampton – he is a world class gift .”

Saints are in the Premiership, together with Proctor their very first new signing for the 2019-20 effort.
