Northampton Saints announce that flanker Teimana Harrison has become the first member of the senior academy to sign a full contract at the club.

Northampton Saints have announced that young flanker Teimana Harrison has signed a full contract with the club after coming through this year's senior academy.

The 20-year-old has been rewarded for his efforts following his move to Northampton last November.

"I've still got to get used to this weather but all in all I'm loving my time here," said Harrison. "I'm very excited by my new contract and it offers a lot of opportunities for me. Hopefully I can get some games during the season.

"I've thoroughly enjoyed my time in Northampton so far, and obviously my main aim is to try and get into the first team here at the Saints. That's what I'm focusing on at the moment."

The club's director of rugby Jim Mallinder said: "Teimana has the hunger, desire and quality to be able to succeed in the Premiership. When he arrived we could see straight away that he had all of the skills and raw talent, and now that he has had a full pre-season under his belt he is starting to take that to the next level.

"We have had no hesitation in offering Teimana a full contract for the next two years, and hopefully he will remain a part of the Saints squad for a long time after that."

Harrison has four first-team appearances and one Aviva Premiership try under his belt.
