Fijian-born back rower Tui Uru played for National 2 South side Bury St Edmunds for two seasons before making the step up to the top level of English rugby with Northampton Saints.

Uru was regular member of the Eastern Counties set-up and played for Ipswich until 2017, also representing England Counties at under-20s level in his fledgling career.

Beginning his senior career with Bury St Edmunds, Uru made 38 appearances in National 2 South before attracting the attention of Saints in 2019.

The No.8 represented the Wanderers on three occasions before joining Saints’ ranks full time, scoring an impressive try against Leicester Tigers in April 2019 and helping the side reach the Premiership Rugby Shield knock-out stages for the fourth consecutive season.

Featuring predominantly for the Wanderers, Uru made four appearances off the bench for the Premiership side in 2019/20 alongside a loan stint at Nottingham.

He was part of the core group of Northampton players to link up at Goldington Road for the shortened 2021 campaign and scored in the pre-season victory over Ampthill, becoming a regular in the matchday squad thereafter.

Bedford Blues announced that following a stellar Championship campaign, Tui Uru has agreed to join the club permanently for the 2021/22 season from Northampton Saints.
