Saints boss Chris Boyd has hailed the quality of summer signing Andrew Kellaway.

And Boyd believes the Australian is benefiting from a change of environment as Kellaway continues to settle in at Franklin's Gardens.

The 23-year-old switched to Northampton from Super Rugby side the Waratahs during the close-season.

And Kellaway has already made a big impression, scoring two tries in eight appearances so far.

He has shown his versatility with stints at centre, wing and full-back.

And Boyd said: "Andrew's a quality player. He just needed to find some game time and a home.

"He was at the Waratahs and got injured early on. He couldn't find his way back and he had some pretty good competition in that spot.

"He felt he needed a change, to get out of Sydney, freshen up and he's a quality player."
