Hartley has confidence Saints can step up in LV= Cup

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins
The defeat to Munster was the Saints' first in six games, with the form in Aviva Premiership Rugby having lifted the team to third place in the table.

This weekend attention turns back to the LV= Cup with a mouthwatering trip to the Recreation Ground. Both the Saints and Bath go into the match top of their respective pools with maximum league points from their two games played so far.


Concerns have been raised in the press as to how the Saints will cope during the Six Nations. But with 33 players in all seeing action during the wins over Castres, Bath, Newcastle, Harlequins and the Scarlets Hartley says that the squad depth at the Gardens is better now than ever.


"We've had some fantastic results in recent weeks and one loss against a quality side like Munster is not going to harm us, I think," he told SaintsTV after the match at stadiumMK.


"We've got two big LV= Cup games to come and are still well place in the Premiership. We can crack on.


"We've got a great squad at the club now. Players can step up now, the likes of Scott Armstrong, Jamie Elliott, Alex Waller and Tom May can all come in. We've got good rotation and I've got every confidence that we will do well in the next few weeks.


"The team's in good hands."
