Saints team named for LV= Cup clash with Gloucester

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

The Saints go head-to-head with the Cherry and Whites in the LV= Cup for the first time since the 2010 final. Both teams have a good recent record in the competition, reaching four finals and four semi-finals between them.


Last November's six league points earned against Harlequins and Newport-Gwent Dragons put the Saints top of Pool 4, and director of rugby Jim Mallinder says that he is looking for the players to kick on and keep semi-final qualification in their own hands.


"We worked hard to get to the top of our pool and we want to stay there," he said. "The LV= Cup has been a good competition for us in the past few years and another win would take us one step closer to the semi-finals.


"Gloucester have been going well in the competition, too, so it is not going to be easy for us. But training has been positive, the players are focused and are all looking to move forward with a good result tomorrow."


Tickets remain available for tomorrow's game, which kicks off at 3pm. To book simply CLICK HERE and follow the straightforward instructions.
