Alexander Marshall "Alex" Waller (born 14 February 1990) is a rugby union player for Premiership side Northampton Saints and the England Saxons.

Club career[edit]

Born in Kettering, Waller is a product of the Northampton Saints Academy and made his debut in November 2009 against the Ospreys.[2] He scored the winning try in the 2014 Premiership Final as Saints beat Saracens 24–20 in extra time.[3]

International career[edit]

In January 2014 he was named as an injury replacement in the England Saxons squad for the game against the Ireland Wolfhounds.[4] The call up marked his first inclusion in any of England's representative teams.[5] He made his debut in the match as the Saxons slipped to a 14–8 defeat,[6] and earned a second cap the following week against Scotland A.[7] In May that year, Waller was among a group of 16 players called up after the Premiership Final to join up with the senior England squad for the three Test summer tour of New Zealand.[8]
