Fixture News One round left. One point needed
After eight months and 21 rounds, the race for a home Aviva Premiership semi-final has come down to the last match of the regular season.
With the Saints drawing at Bath on Friday night and Leicester getting a bonus point win at Sale on Saturday afternoon the maths for a home Aviva Premiership semi-final have become very simple.
Get a win or a draw against London Wasps on Saturday afternoon and the Saints will be at home in the Aviva Premiership semi-finals. Even a losing bonus point should be enough, barring a dramatic turnaround in points difference.
But a victory is what everyone at Franklin's Gardens wants, taking the momentum of recent weeks into the Aviva Premiership play-offs.
Wasps have been in good form recently, reaching the Amlin Challenge Cup semi-finals and securing a spot in a play-off for a place in next season's European Rugby Champions Cup.
The importance of the game has been recognised by BT Sport, who have chosen the game as one of the two that they will be broadcasting live on Saturday afternoon. The kick off time has been unaltered, with all six Aviva Premiership Round 22 matches kicking off at 3:15pm.
So the Saints need all the support that can be mustered to cheer them to a home tie! Tickets are on sale now; book them online by CLICKING HERE and following the straightforward instructions, using Print@Home to beat the match day collection queues and saving the admin fees in the process!
