Saints team named for Sandy Park trip

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Just one point separates the Saints from the Chiefs in the Aviva Premiership Rugby table, and director of rugby Jim Mallinder is under no illusions as to how tough tomorrow's game at Sandy Park will be.


"Exeter like to play a good 15-man game," he said. "We know how tough it is there and will have to be accurate in everything we do.


"We were a point away from winning away against the second placed team in the league. That was positive, but we know that not many teams win in Exeter and we'll have to play well on Saturday.


"It's a very important game, but so is every game in the Aviva Premiership. They're in a similar position to us in the table and we'll have to play well to win.


"We've had some tough games which haven't gone our way. But we're still confident and know that what counts is where you finish at the end of the season."
