Joel Matavesi signs on again with Saints

Centre Joel Matavesi has signed a new contract to remain at Northampton Saints, the Club can today confirm.


The 28-year-old has made seven appearances in Black, Green and Gold since initially arriving in Northampton on a short-term deal in 2022.

Originally a part of Exeter Chiefs’ Academy, alongside older brothers Josh and current Saints hooker Sam, Matavesi spent time at hometown club Cambourne, Welsh outfit Ospreys, and Cornish side Redruth before breaking into the Gallagher Premiership at Newcastle Falcons in 2017.

Matavesi was named a permanent part of Saints’ squad after a successful trial period ahead of the 2022/23 season, and now the centre is delighted to be extending his stay in Northampton.


The centre touched down in Northampton in March 2022, making his Club debut a just few days later against Saracens in the Premiership Rugby Cup.

Matavesi has since gone on to feature regularly for Saints in that competition, making seven appearances and scoring 22 points in Black, Green and Gold to date.
