Andy Saull (born 27 September 1988 in London) is a rugby union player who plays at flanker for Newcastle Falcons in the Aviva Premiership, having moved there at the start of season 2013-14.

He was educated at Bancroft's School and Birkbeck, University of London. He formative years were spent playing for Woodford R.F.C. in Redbridge.

Saull made his Sarries debut in an EDF Energy Cup match against Bristol Rugby.[2]

He made his first Saracens 1st XV start on the 12th of September, 2008 against Sale Sharks.[3]

Saull was a member of the grand slam winning England Under 20 team in 2008.[4]

Saull made his England Saxons debut against Portugal in January, 2009.[5]

Saull made his 100th appearance for Saracens on the 27th of December, 2011, after replacing the injured Jacques Burger in the squad.[6]

Saracens career[edit]

In his first season as a first team squad member, Andy Saull made the openside flank position his own in a year that also saw him called up by England Saxons

He made his full debut for Saracens F.C. in 2007/08 against Bristol in the EDF Energy Cup just months after finishing his A-Level studies.

A regular in the team in the 2010/11 title winning season, a leg injury picked up in the final prevented him from joining up with England Saxons that summer.[1]

International career[edit]

He was also part of the England U20 squad which won the Six Nations Grand Slam in 2008 although he missed much of the previous season with a broken leg.

Things have gone even better for the Academy graduate in his second season that has led to many pundits tipping the Essex-born back row to make the step up from the England Saxons squad and into the full England side.[1]
