Northampton Saints would like to remind supporters to be as safe as possible in travelling to today’s fixture.

According to Premiership Rugby’s protocols, the Club is required to do everything in its power to ensure the games go ahead as planned – if the Stadium is safe and the pitch is suitable, Northampton Saints is obliged to stage the game in its allocated slot.
If a match is deemed to have been postponed unnecessarily, the Club is liable to be penalised by Premiership Rugby.
