Skosan marked his Premiership debut with a hat-trick of tries in his new team’s win over Worcester Warriors on Friday.

The twelve-cap former Springboks back signed for Saints from the Lions in August but had to wait for his Friday bow at Franklin’s Gardens after completing his quarantine upon arrival in the UK.

It was certainly worth that delay as Skosan played a full part in handing Worcester a ten-try drubbing, with a spectacular diving finish in the corner for his second Northampton score the stand-out moment.

Commenting on Skosan’s debut, Northampton Saints coach Chris Boyd said: “He is a good man and he has been a good footballer for a long time – and he is not just a finisher either.

“He got three tries and all of them were pretty decent finishes, but he was busy around the paddock and was good in the air.

“He is a good defender, he works hard. He is a quality footballer – that is why he has played so many times for his country,”
