Meet The Mentor: Alex

Born in Kettering, prop Alex Waller carved his name into Northampton Saints folklore with his extra-time try against Saracens in 2014 to give the Club a first-ever Premiership title.

A product of the Saints Academy, Waller was educated at Wellingborough School and made his debut in November 2009 against Ospreys.

He was named Young Player of the season in 2012, and holds a Premiership record for making the most consecutive appearances in league history.

Waller took on co-captaincy of the Club ahead of the 2018/19 season – alongside Dylan Hartley – and played in 32 of Saints’ 36 games that term, lifting the Premiership Rugby Cup aloft in front of a packed-out Franklin’s Gardens and featuring in Saints’ Premiership semi-final against Exeter Chiefs.

Waller has also earned international recognition, making his debut for England Saxons against Irish Wolfhounds and earning his second cap the following week against Scotland A – this call up was his first inclusion in any of England’s representative sides.
