Northampton Saints can today announce that centre Rory Hutchinson has signed a contract extension with the Club.
The 23-year old, whose form in recent weeks saw him named February’s Gallagher Premiership player of the month, has made 28 appearances to date in Black, Green and Gold since making his debut against Leicester Tigers in 2015.
After recovering from an early-season injury, this term the former Scotland under-20 international has scored three tries in eight starts, and Hutchinson is hopeful he can take his game to a new level with Saints.
Born in Cambridge, Hutchinson joined the Saints Academy from Shelford before breaking into the first-team squad in earnest during the 2016/17 season – with his try against Exeter Chiefs on his first Club start winning Northampton’s Try of the Season award.
Internationally Hutchinson has represented Scotland at both Under-18s and Under-20s level, playing in both the 2014 and 2015 World Rugby Under-20s Championships and Six Nations competitions to become the joint most-capped Scotland Under-20s player ever.
