OISIN Heffernan has joined Gallagher Premiership side Northampton Saints.

The 25-year-old prop joined the Green and Whites back in 2018 and went on to make 44 appearances for Nottingham during his two years at the club, scoring three tries. 

He will now make the step up to the Gallagher Premiership as he joins Chris Boyd’s squad. 

Head Coach Neil Fowkes said: “We are obviously disappointed to lose a player of Oisin’s quality but we wish him well for his future. He’s worked hard for his opportunity over the two and a half years at the club. 

“It shows that Nottingham Rugby is still a great place for developing players and that the RFU Championship is the number one breeding ground for future Premiership players, coaches, support staff and officials.”
