Mujati joined Saints in 2009 making his debut at Wembley Stadium. A second-half try for Mujati against Saracens helped the Saints reach the 2009-10 LV= Cup final and by the end of the campaign he was a regular sight on the first team field. The continuation of his fine form into 2010/11 was all the more impressive and he marked himself out as the cornerstone of a formidable Saints pack, featuring in every Premiership and Heineken Cup fixture. After confirming himself as Europe's premium tight-head and a fans favourite to boot, 'Mooj' was voted Players' Player of the Season and selected in the Sky Sports and ESPN Premiership Dream Team. He also finished second only to team mate Tom Wood in the Aviva Premiership Player of the Season vote. Though Brian struggled to find consistency early in 2012/13, his run to form was timed perfectly and he would contribute a semi-final try as the Saints stormed to the Premiership Final at Twickenham.
