Northampton Saints centre and former Cambridge Rugby Club youth player Fraser Dingwall enjoys memorable few days





Fraser Dingwall has had plenty of reason to celebrate in recent days.

Fresh from being named Northampton Saints’ Player of the Month for February and picking up Premiership Rugby’s Try of the Month award, last week the former Cambridge Rugby Club youngster won the Gallagher Player of the Month accolade.

The Cambridge-born centre is the eighth Saints player to have won the award and it comes after he had scored match-winning tries against Sale Sharks and Gloucester.

The club’s director of rugby Phil Dowson said: “Fraser’s quality on the pitch is clear for all to see, but during February he also stepped up superbly as captain of the side and he’s a really important leader for us on matchday and throughout the week.”

And to cap that success, the 23-year-old made his 100th appearance for the Saints during Friday’s 45-26 home victory over Bath.

Dowson added: “Fraser’s always been mature beyond his years, and always wants to get better – it’s easy to forget he’s still only 23 years old. As a Saints Academy graduate, we’re very proud to see him bring up 100 appearances for Northampton and no doubt he has many more ahead of him.”

The win at the expense of Bath has left the Northampton side sitting fourth in the table, 14 points off leaders Saracens.
