Nic Groom to join Northampton Saints next season
The Stormers scrum half recently attained his 50th Super Rugby cap for the side and is also a double Currie Cup winner.
“Leaving Cape Town and the DHL Stormers is going to be tough and a big change, but I'm looking forward to embracing new experiences both on and off the field. I have many happy memories playing in Cape Town; it's where it all started for me.
“I'm extremely excited to be joining up with Northampton next season,” Groom said. “It's a top club with a proud history and personally it's a big honour to sign with them. I'm hoping to continue growing as a player and as a person and to contribute to what will hopefully be a very successful period at the club."
