Skosan, who joined Saints from South African side Lions, has scored 19 tries in Black, Green and Gold – departs the Club after making 37 appearances in a Saints shirt.

The 31-year-old arrived in Northampton with 12 Springbok caps to his name and over 100 appearances across the Super Rugby and Currie Cup competitions with the Lions.

The wing also played for South Africa at the World Rugby Under-20 Championship in 2011, and South Africa ‘A’ in 2016, before his full international debut for the Springboks in 2017.

And Skosan hit the ground running after touching down in Northampton – with the 31-year-old scoring an impressive hat-trick of tries on debut against Worcester Warriors in 2021 before adding a further ten tries in his first term.

The former Springbok has made 16 appearances so far this season and having added a further six tries to his tally already, is determined to end this term positively.

“Courtnall is a very good man and I feel very strongly about him and his time at the Club,” said Saints’ Director of Rugby Phil Dowson.

“It’s fair to say Courtnall’s made a significant impact on the field too, his ability to score tries has been an incredible asset but his work rate in all the other areas of his game is just as impressive.

“He is an absolute professional and I know he will continue to give his all as we fight for a play-off place after that Courtnall will leave with our very best wishes.”

Skosan said: “Thank you to Saints’ management, players, and staff for the last two seasons. And to the fans – thank you for the support. You really are a force to be reckoned with, there’s no better feeling than to play in front of a packed Franklin’s Gardens.

“For now, though, I’m looking forward to finishing this season on high. God bless.”
