Academy taking on Saracens this weekend; Artemyev in action for Russia

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

As well as the seven Saints playing for England in the Six Nations tomorrow (three in the senior team, four in the Under-20s) there is another player from Franklin's Gardens on international duty - wing Vasily Artemyev, who lines up for Russia in their next Rugby World Cup qualifier with Georgia.

It is a big game for the Bears, who won their first game against Spain but let a five-point lead slip in the final minutes against Romania a fortnight ago. Meanwhile Georgia won their first two games against Belgium (which included this spectacular brawl) and Portugal, and everything will be at stake in Eastern European rugby's biggest derby match.

Russia v Georgia kicks off at 11am GMT tomorrow, with live streaming at www.rugby.ru

Later in the day the Saints Under-17s travel to Allianz Park to become the first team in black, green and gold to play on Saracens' new artificial pitch (KO 1pm). The team will be led by Harry Mallinder and includes the five members of the Junior Saints Academy included in the England Under-17 training squad earlier in the season, as well as a healthy number of Under-16 players, too.

Finally, Jamie Warr continues his run in the Cambridge starting line-up for their National League One home clash with Macclesfield.
