Northampton Saints have announced the signing of 22-year-old Australian wing Andrew Kellaway from the Waratahs.
The former u20's star will further bolster the Saints backline ahead of a new regime under current Hurricanes boss Chris Boyd. Kellaway will compete with fellow Waratahs wing Taqele Naiyaravoro, who will also be swapping Sydney for the Midlands.
After scoring ten tries in just five matches Kellaway set a new record for tries scored in a single junior World Cup in 2014, a title formerly held by Julian Savea and Zach Guildford.
Able to play both at fullback and on the wing, Kellaway will likely act as a direct replacement for the departing Ben Foden, who has signed for an American club side.
“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.”
