Premiership Rugby has today confirmed the fixture schedule for Rounds 16 and 17 of the competition, with Northampton Saints set to take on London Irish and Leicester Tigers.
The men in Black, Green and Gold first welcome the Exiles to Franklin’s Gardens on Friday 16 April (kick-off: 7.45pm), with the clash set to be broadcast live on BT Sport.
Saints are then on the road the following week, with a mouthwatering East Midlands Derby in store at Welford Road on Saturday 24 April (kick-off: 3pm) also live on BT Sport.
Both fixtures will be the first time Northampton have locked horns with either side in this season’s Gallagher Premiership race, after the respective clashes earlier this season were cancelled – but with competition for the league’s play-off places heating up, both will be crucial for Chris Boyd’s side.
