Breaking: Louise Picamoles’ Future Has Been Decided

France international Louis Picamoles has left Northampton Saints to rejoin Top 14 side Montpellier for a “significant transfer fee”.

The 31-year-old joined Saints last summer on a three-year contract and was nominated for the Rugby Players’ Association player of the season award.

Picamoles has 62 caps and played all five games in this year’s Six Nations.

Saints said the deal for the number eight will “underpin the future financial stability for his family”.
