Chris Boyd is the new Saints boss

Northampton Saints have announced that New Zealander Chris Boyd will be the new Director of Rugby in August.

Boyd has won trophies with the Wellington Hurricanes and has a wealth of coaching experience, including coaching the All Blacks Under 20s.

Saints Chief Executive Mark Darbon said the club is itching to get Chris involved.

He said: “We are itching to get him here and very exicted by the appointment. We were overwhelmed by the level of interest in the role, I think we had more than 60 applications in one shape or form.

“We whittled that down to a shortlist but from the very start Chris was number one on our list. We actively sought out a conversation with him so we are delighted to have landed our man.”
