Northampton Saints sign Ospreys lock as cover for Lawes and Ratuniyarawa

Northampton Saints have confirmed that Ben Glynn has joined the club on a short-term loan deal from Ospreys.

The 6ft, 6in lock arrives at Franklin’s Gardens to bolster the second row following injuries to David Ribbans and Alex Moon, with Api Ratuniyarawa currently serving a four-week suspension and Courtney Lawes on Six Nations duty with England.

Glynn, 28, is also comfortable in the back row and signs from Welsh region Ospreys, having represented England at Under-18 level.

He made 140 appearances for Bristol Bears before switching to Twickenham Stoop to join Harlequins in 2017, where he tallied up over 40 caps for the south-west London outfit.

“We’re very pleased to have been able to bring in a player with plenty of Premiership experience in Ben,” said director of rugby Chris Boyd.

“Injuries and international availability throughout the Six Nations period is obviously putting a little strain on the depth of our squad, so we’ve got to get over that challenge and Ben will help us to do that.

“He offers us an immediate option in a position of need, and in the very short time he has been with the squad, he has slotted in brilliantly. So despite a bit of a whirlwind week, he will certainly be in contention for selection against Exeter this weekend.”
