Rugby News Hartley: We’ll be watching the LV= Cup semi-final

Dylan Hartley says that the Saints players in the England squad will be in front of a TV watching their club mates play in the LV= Cup semi-final.

England don’t play until Sunday afternoon, which means that Hartley and co will be available to cheer on the rest of the Saints take on Saracens in the first semi-final of 2013/14.

“With the game being on a Saturday all the Saints lads will be able to watch, and we’ll be watching!” Hartley told the RFU podcast. “The tournament has been important for the club, and if you look at the Premiership game at the weekend the likes of Tom Stephenson and Will Hooley are young guys who have come through our Academy.

“There’s a massive drive within the squad at the moment. Any tournament we’re in we want to win. We’ve won the LV= Cup before, were finalists a couple of years ago, and as soon as you get to the knockout stages it’s do or die rugby.

“You’ve got to win these one-off games and at the end there’s a massive reward.”

Dylan and the rest of the England players might have to watch on TV, but that doesn’t mean that you have to do the same. Get to the Gardens and cheer on the Saints as they take on the Men in Black!
