Three o’clock Saturday afternoon rugby is back at Franklin’s Gardens this weekend with a crucial match between two of the Aviva Premiership’s form teams over the festive period.
Both the Saints and Bristol have won their two games played in the last fortnight, the Saints overcoming Sale at home and then Gloucester away, with Bristol beating Worcester at Ashton Gate and then staging a dramatic comeback to snatch the points at Sale’s AJ Bell Stadium.
The Saints’ wins have taken them into the Aviva Premiership’s top six and if other results go the club’s way then fifth place is a distinct possibility going into the European and Anglo-Welsh Cup break.
But Bristol’s own four-pointers have given them life in the battle against the drop, with Worcester and Sale both just above the west country outfit in the table.
So Saturday’s game is a true eight-pointer that has massive implications throughout the Aviva Premiership.
