The Saints have been pooled with the reigning European and Aviva Premiership champions in the upcoming Singha Premiership Rugby Sevens Series, which returns to Franklin’s Gardens on Friday, July 28th and Saturday, July 29th.
The Saints open their campaign against Exeter at 7:06pm on the Friday night, before closing the first night’s action against Saracens just after 10pm.
All 12 Premiership clubs will be heading to Northampton for the event, which is the first time that the Singha Premiership Rugby Sevens Series will be played in an Olympics-style format.
Wasps and Newcastle Falcons – both previous Singha Premiership Rugby Sevens Series champions – will kick off the 2017 competition at 6pm.

The top two teams from each pool will progress to the Cup quarter finals, with the bottom-placed teams being entered into the Bowl semi-finals. All of the knockout games will be played on the Saturday afternoon, with all-bar-two of the teams guaranteed a minimum of two more matches.
In all there are 12 matches on the Friday evening, with 13 more on the Saturday, guaranteeing supporters plenty of thrilling action, skills and speed to kick off the new season!
