Northampton prop Colin Noon has left the club after signing a deal with French side Biarritz.
Noon has had limited first-team opportunities this season
Noon, who joined Saints from Leicester last summer, has made only seven appearances this campaign.
"We wish Colin all the best with his time in Biarritz and hope that he gets some good game time out in France," said rugby director Budge Pountney.
In December 2004, Noon was banned for six months after being found guilty of stamping while on loan at Rotherham.
