Brian Mujati braced for 'emotional' Northampton Saints farewell
Northampton Saints forward Brian Mujati is braced for an emotional goodbye in his last game at Franklin's Gardens.
The 28-year-old Springbok is to join Racing Metro at the end of the season and will step out in a Saints home game for the final time in Saturday's Premiership clash against Sale.
- Born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe on 28 September 1984
- Started his career at South African club Lions before joining Stormers
- Signed for Saints ahead of the 2009-10 campaign and has made 106 first-team appearances
- Made his Springboks debut on 7 June 2008 against Wales in Bloemfontein
- Has won 12 caps in total, scoring three tries
"It's going to be special. I've been here a while and I've played a fair amount of games for this club.
"Hopefully it won't be too emotional," he told BBC Radio Northampton.
In his four years with Saints, Mujati has become a cult figure among fans, who refer to him as "Mooj".
The prop has amassed 106 appearances for Jim Mallinder's side, but has decided to take on a new challenge in Paris in the summer.
"It was probably a bigger decision than coming to England in the first place," he said.
"There's the aspect of learning a new language, I have three young children - so there's a lot more to consider in terms of moving to France.
"People have been very kind and welcoming to me here. I will be sad to leave. It's been a special time in my career."
