Rifleman Lewis Bean has been granted permission by the Army to join Northampton Saints.

He will team up with the Saints for an A League game next week before returning to his barracks for regimental sports duties.

Bean, 26, currently balances his military career with playing for Moseley in National One.

Northampton are down on locks after Dom Barrow left the club and David Ribbans suffered a season-ending injury.

Bean will not be the only serviceman in the Premiership. Bath winger Semesa Rokoduguni serves as a lance corporal in the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards.

Lock Josh McNally, a serving engineer in the RAF, joins Bath next season.

Saints hope that England lock Courtney Lawes will return from injury next week to boost numbers.

‘He’s probably a week away so hopefully he’ll be ready to play against Clermont in the Challenge Cup quarter-final next Sunday,’ coach Chris Boyd told the Northampton Chronicle.
