Each week supporters pit their wits against each other, choosing the five players from either team that they think will have the biggest impact on that weekend’s game. The winning entrant earns themselves a pair of match tickets, plus bragging rights, of course!

To sign up for this game head to www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/fantasy and follow the instructions. And here are some players you might want to look out for at Welford Road this Saturday.

SAINTS

TOM COLLINS Tom Collins is back in the Saints’ first team for the first time since November. He has already made his mark on the LV= Cup this season with a two-try performance against Newcastle in Round 1 that earned him a place on the LV= Breakthrough Player Award short-list.

ETHAN WALLER With Alex Corbisiero away with England and Alex Waller on the Saxons’ bench in Cork this weekend, the younger Waller brother gets the chance to shine. Ethan is a rampaging prop who is as useful with the ball in hand as he is aggressive in the scrum.

LEICESTER

NIALL MORRIS Dubliner Niall Morris will be wanting to make his mark in his first start since the first month of the season. He came off the bench in Leicester’s Champions Cup loss at Ulster last week and no doubt will be seeing to return to the form that saw him earn Emerging Ireland honours in 2013.

LAURENCE PEARCE The 24-year-old number eight joined Leicester last summer from Rotherham Titans, and has a reputation as a powerful ball carrier. Pearce has county Under-20 honours in rugby union, and also represented England Students at rugby league.
