The Blues will be on the lookout for yet another first five next season.

Piers Francis has signed with English Premiership club Northampton Saints and will return to his native England later this year.

Francis played at number 10 against the Crusaders last weekend after starting the season at second-five outside Ihaia West.

The 26-year-old has played 15 matches for the Blues, scoring 56 points, after making his Super Rugby debut.

"I will always be thankful for my opportunities in New Zealand, and to Tana Umaga for giving me my chance with Counties Manukau and with the Blues," Francis said.
