Stephen Myler

21st Jul 1984 1.80m/96kg Fly Half

Born in the rugby league crazed Widnes, Myler began his career in the 13 man code before switching to union in 2006. Having left Wade Deacon High School, Myler went straight into St.Helens academy before joining local club Widnes Vikings in 2002.

Stephen switched to rugby union in 2006 when he joined the Saints and made his debut in the Guinness Premiership against Saracens.

During his time at the Gardens, Stephen has established himself as the first choice fly half with his expert game management and high quality place kicking which has helped the Saints to many important victories over the years.

His full international debut came in 2013 on England's tour of Argentina. His impressive kicking percentage has earned him a call up into the English squad for the upcoming Six Nations in 2015.

In March 2018, Myler announced that he will be leaving Franklin’s Gardens at the end of the season after almost 12 seasons at the club.

Myler, third on the Premiership’s all-time list of scorers with 1,697 points, played more than 300 times for Saints including a man-of-the-match display in the dramatic Aviva Premiership final triumph over Saracens.

A player for the big occasion, Myler has a 100% success rate with the boot in all major finals that he has played in for Northampton, kicking 23 from 23 attempts. Helping Saints to promotion from the Championship in 2008, the England-capped No. 10 kicked all the goals to guide Northampton to a European Challenge Cup title the following year as they defeated Bourgoin 15-3 at The Stoop.

In May 2018 London Irish confirmed that Myler would join the club for the 2018/19 season.
