Saints team named to play Sale Sharks

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

The Saints return to Franklin's Gardens for the only home Aviva Premiership Rugby match of the Six Nations period and director of rugby Jim Mallinder says that the team will have to build on the bonus point earned at Kingsholm last weekend.

"We were disappointed last week because we played some good rugby, especially in the second half," he said. "We've had to look at ourselves and work on a few things this week, especially our accuracy, which we need to get right. That said it was a good bonus point to win at Gloucester and it is something we can take into this weekend's game and build on.


"Because the Aviva Premiership table is so close at the moment every game is massively important. We got a losing bonus point away from home last week but it's a home game for us tomorrow and we need to win it.


"Sale is one of a number of teams just behind us in the table and are looking for a playoff spot. So it's important that we get a win this weekend."


Nearly a thousand tickets have been sold in just four days for the game.


There are a couple of hundred left, however, which can be booked now by CLICKING HERE and following the straightforward instructions.


The game is not being televised live anywhere, so the only way to experience the Saints live this weekend is in person at the Gardens! See the Saints home in 2012!
