Premiership Rugby have today announced the Premiership Rugby U18s Academies League fixtures for the 2017/18 season.
Finishing in a frustrating fourth place in the Northern conference last season, just outside the Finals Day qualification spots, Saints' youngsters head up their campaign this season with a trip to local rivals Leicester Tigers just before Christmas.
In the new year the side head to Goldington Road to host Worcester Warriors on the Bedford Blues first XV pitch before hitting the road again to finish January's games at Newcastle Falcons.
A trip to Yorkshire Carnegie is in store in February before finishing their season with two home fixtures against Sale Sharks and Wasps.
