Dickens calls for the Gardens to bring the noise

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Alan Dickens has charged the Saints supporters with upping the volume this weekend as the Saints return to the Aviva Premiership and Franklin's Gardens to host Wasps.

As yet unbeaten at home in the Aviva Premiership, Saints currently occupy third place in the table, below league leaders Saracens by only three points and Alan Dickens says Saints are not underestimating their Coventry-based guests, despite their tenth place league position.

 

Confident that the side are coming back into the Aviva Premiership with a huge desire to keep their top four place, Dickens said:

"We've put ourselves in a really good position.

"We had a bit of blip with the first game of the season but then we've won four from six. We just need to put in a good performance this weekend and if we find that performance we should get the result we desire.

"We just need to make sure that whatever we do, we do together."

With the game quickly heading towards a sell-out crowd, Dickens commended the supporters passion in getting behind the team this season.

"The fans have been absolutely fantastic this season. It started at the end of last year, with the atmosphere against Connacht and Stade, and they've brought that through into this year.

"We talked this week about how intimidating the Clermont supporters were but equally when our fans are in good voice it's an intimidating place to come."


Keep getting behind the boys as they return to the Gardens this weekend to host their newest local rivals Wasps.

Tickets for the game are very limited but some still remain from £32/14 at bit.ly/SAI-WAS-201718
