Heading into their first semi-final since 2015, Saints return home to host Newcastle Falcons at Franklin's Gardens in the first knock-out round of this season's Premiership Rugby Cup.

Defeating Leicester Tigers last time out to secure their place as second seed in the competition - bagging themselves a home semi-final in the process - Saints were made to wait to learn their semi-final fate but with Newcastle Falcons securing their place at the top of pool one on Sunday, it's the north-east outfit that makes the trip to Northampton this weekend. 

But with the men in Black, Green and Gold without a win over Newcastle Falcons in their last five outings against the side, Saints will be in for a tough challenge on Saturday (kick-off 12.15pm).
