Each and every time the East Midlands derby is played out there seems to be plenty at stake other than ‘just’ bragging rights and this Saturday’s meeting is no different.
SAINTS V TIGERS | FRANKLIN’S GARDENS | SATURDAY, MARCH 25TH, 2017 | KICK OFF 3PM
The Saints have won their last five matches at Franklin’s Gardens in all tournaments since December, while their most recent loss at home in Premiership Rugby was to Newcastle last November.
Tigers meanwhile have lost just one of their last six first team matches; 15-34 at home to Exeter last time out in the Aviva Premiership. They have won their last two away games, at Harlequins and at Saracens in the semi-final of the Anglo-Welsh Cup, and are now targeting a third away win in a row for the first time since 2015.
The Tigers have won their last six matches against the Saints in all tournaments since their 19-23 reversal at Franklin’s Gardens in Premiership Rugby in December 2014 – although just one of those victories came in Northampton.
Less than 100 seats remain for the biggest Gardens game of the year, with a further 50 available on the terrace. The game is expected to sell out within the next 48 hours, so don’t delay – CLICK HERE to book online now!
