Northampton Saints prop Francois van Wyk has signed a new deal to keep him at the Premiership club until 2021.

The South African loose-head, 27, joined from Super Rugby side Western Force in May 2017 and has made 43 appearances for Northampton.

Van Wyk has featured 18 times so far this season, though 12 of those have come as a replacement.

“The confidence that Chris Boyd and the coaches have put in me this season have helped me to kick on,” he said.
