Waller: We can't switch off for a minute against London Irish

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Saints may have won back-to-back games to put themselves well into contention for a place in the top four going into the LV= Cup break, but Waller acknowledges that the Exiles will be buoyed by last weekend's win over London Wasps and that they cannot be taken lightly.

"We've got a bit of momentum at the moment and hopefully we can get a win to keep that going," the prop told SaintsTV. "Back in September we weren't right mentally when we went to Reading and they punished us. We know that we can't have a single minute off in the Aviva Premiership; every team's a good team and has the capability to beat you.

"We can't switch off and we've been preparing for London Irish in the same way we do for every game. They're a good team with good forwards and some exciting backs, and now the ground's firming up that's when they could come into play.

"We're going to have to go into this game focused and not look at the table in terms of where they are. We need to switch on and be in the same frame of mind we were last week."

Tickets remain available for tomorrow's game (which is not being televised live), with prices starting at £28 for adults and £18 for juniors and concessions. Order now by calling 01604 581000 or by CLICKING HERE and following the straightforward instructions.
