Club News Tickets in high demand for massive fortnight of home action

Franklin's Gardens looks set to be packed this October, with Saints supporters snapping up tickets for two massive home matches.

On Sunday, October 20th the Ospreys come to town in the second round of the Heineken Cup. The Welsh region have gone into the European break sitting third in the Pro 12 table, just three points off top spot.

The Ospreys provided five players to the successful British and Irish Lions touring party this summer, including Alun Wyn Jones, who skippered the team in the decisive third test. But they have a host of other international players, too, and the squad that Steve Tandy and the Ospreys coaches will bring to the East Midlands will have dangerous players all over the pitch.

Six days later, on Saturday, October 26th, it is the turn of Saracens to come to Franklin's Gardens. The Men in Black have started the Aviva Premiership season with five wins from their five matches and lie top of the table, six points ahead of the second-placed Saints.

It is the first time that the two teams will have met since the Aviva Premiership semi-final, and Saints will have to be on the best possible form to overcome one of the strongest squads anywhere in the UK.

These are two of the biggest games of the season, and you can play your part by filling Franklin's Gardens and getting behind the Saints! Tickets are on general sale NOW - book online 24/7 by CLICKING HERE and following the straightforward instructions.

Tickets are also on general sale for the upcoming home matches against Gloucester (LV= Cup; Saturday, November 9th), Newcastle Falcons (Aviva Premiership; Saturday, November 23rd) and Leinster (Heineken Cup; Saturday, December 7th), while Saints Nation Members and Season Ticket Holders can book tickets for the December 28th Aviva Premiership clash against Bath.
