Northampton qualify after win over Timisoara Saracens

Northampton Saints progress to the European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-finals after a 111-3 victory over Timisoara Saracens at Franklin’s Gardens.


The home fans were treated to some delightful attacking rugby as Ollie Sleightholme grabbed four tries while Alex Mitchell also ran in a hattrick of scores.

It was Luther Burrell who bagged the first try after three minutes and while Timisoara hit back through a Samoa penalty, that was as good as it got for the Romanian side who were well-beaten by a clinical Northampton side who looked back to their brilliant best.

James Grayson also scored 22 points from the kicking tee in a professional performance from the fly-half.

Northampton Saints will progress as one of three best runners-up in the Challenge Cup after finishing behind ASM Clermont Auvergne who tallied a maximum 30 points from six matches.
