Murray leaves the Saints

British & Irish Lions prop Euan Murray has left Northampton Saints by mutual consent it was announced today.

Murray, 30, joined the Saints after the 2007 Rugby World Cup and in his three years at Franklin's Gardens he played 61 times for the Saints. He scored two tries in that time and was in the side that won the 2009 Amlin Challenge Cup.

He leaves the club with immediate effect and with director of rugby Jim Mallinder wishing him the best for the future.

"Euan is a big personality and has helped the club become competitive again at the top end of the Premiership and in Europe. He has played well for us and we have enjoyed having him here at Franklin's Gardens and we wish him all the best for the future."

Murray helped Scotland to beat South Africa and Samoa during last month’s international series and played for Northampton in their two Heineken Cup matches this season, against Castres Olympique and Edinburgh.
