Saints kick off new era with Kingsholm clash

Northampton Saints will open up their 2018/19 Gallagher Premiership Rugby campaign with a trip to Kingsholm to face Gloucester Rugby in round one, with the fixtures confirmed today in London.

The Franklin’s Gardens faithful will then be given their first glimpse of the men in Black, Green and Gold in the Premiership as they return to home soil for consecutive weeks to take on London sides Harlequins and Saracens.

“I can't wait to hear the Saints’ supporters in full voice at Franklin’s Gardens .”

Chris Boyd

Saints round off September with two trips to the West Country, facing Bath Rugby and newly-promoted Bristol Bears, before a rip-roaring East Midlands derby against Leicester Tigers precedes the first European break of the season.

“A trip to Kingsholm to play Gloucester Rugby is one of the Premiership’s most special experiences, and I look forward to kicking-off my tenure at Saints there,” said new director of rugby Chris Boyd.

“I am already hugely excited about our first game at Franklin’s Gardens against Harlequins, and hearing the Saints’ supporters in full voice.”

Other dates for Saints supporters’ diaries include the visit of midlands-rivals Wasps to Northampton in November, a home Christmas clash with Premiership champions Exeter Chiefs, and a trip to Welford Road to take on Tigers in late March.

Boyd’s side will round off their season next May by locking horns with Worcester Warriors at home, before a trip to Chiefs on the final day of the regular league season.
