The Saints’ European campaign kicks off against Scarlets on Saturday evening and Kieran Brookes is relishing what would be his Champions Cup debut at Franklin’s Gardens.
The prop has started all four of the Saints’ games at the start of 2015/16 and is looking forward to another outing at Franklin’s Gardens.
“It’s exciting and one of the reasons why I joined the club - to play in big games and the Champions Cup is definitely full of them,” he told the Saints podcast. “We’ve got a really tough group with some stiff competition.
“It’s been a bit of a shaky start but the opportunity to play in Europe is a bit of a fresh start for us. We’ve been working hard since the Saracens game and hopefully we can show that this Saturday.
“It’s a different challenge for us and something to look forward to.”
