Northampton Saints are doing a great job. This time they confirmed the signing of a great player. It's about Curtis Langdon. However, Curtis will join the club next season. Saints' Director of Rugby, Phil Dowson had nothing but praise for Langdon.
“I’ve always really enjoyed watching Curtis play in the Gallagher Premiership throughout his time with Sale and Worcester,” said Phil Dowson, as quoted by rugbypass.com. “He’s tough, aggressive, and relentless in everything he does on the pitch – but he’s also got a high skill level, and we want our hookers to be able to get their hands on the ball around the park.
I love his attitude towards his training and his own improvement; he’s a very ambitious guy and no doubt he is hoping to add to the international caps he already has under his belt. Curtis is a straight-talking, no-nonsense sort of player with a bit of edge.
He’s been going well for Montpellier since his move there, so we’re really looking forward to bringing him into our environment and I’m confident he’ll be a great fit for us”. Langdon explained his decision.
He is happy about coming to such a big club and expects to show his full capacity.
Curtis Langdon on his arrival
“I’m incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to return to the Premiership, and thrilled to do it at a massive Club in Northampton Saints,” he said.
“Saints have a young and exciting squad, full of internationals and English players, which I’m eager to be a part of. I hope I can add some value to the group and help to drive the Club forwards. I met with Phil Dowson and the rest of Saints’ coaches before I came out to France.
They are an enthusiastic group of coaches with a clear vision for the future – speaking to them it was obvious that coming to Northampton was going to be really good for my development as a player. I’ve always enjoyed playing at Franklin’s Gardens too; the atmosphere around the ground is fantastic on matchday and it’s a great pitch to play on.
Putting my hand up for England selection again was definitely part of the decision to come to Northampton. I want to do everything I can to play well and help Saints first and foremost, but if that goes to plan, I’d love to get another opportunity at international level”. - Langdon concluded.
