The end of the Six Nations brings the return of international players ahead of the Aviva Premiership’s crucial remaining matches.
This weekend’s visitors, Harlequins, sit just two points below the Saints in the table and come to Franklin’s Gardens with plenty to play for. Despite some patchy form during the Six Nations, including last Saturday’s 15-21 home loss to Worcester, Harlequins have shown throughout the season that they deserve respect, having been in the top four for long periods and playing some dangerous attacking rugby.
However Saints have won their last three home games, all of which with a try scoring bonus point, and have won five from their last seven games. George North scored four tries in four successive matches for Wales with Kieran Brookes having been included in England’s match day 23 for their Six Nations clashes with Wales and France.
Sunday’s game is sure to be competitive, certainly if the February clash between the Saints and Harlequins is anything to go by. The lead changed hands numerous times, with the contest only settled in the last play of the game by Ben Foden’s try.
