Saints and Wasps do battle at Franklin's Gardens

The Saints will attempt to take the sting out of Wasps when they meet at Franklin’s Gardens in the last of Saturday’s fixtures. 

Wasps put in a winning shift during Round 19 – defeating Worcester Warriors 23-19 at the Ricoh Arena. 


 

 


Saints, on the other hand, succumbed to the courage of the Newcastle Falcons, who managed to put their rivals down, 18-10. 

 


 

While Saints hover in fifth position, they trail Harlequins by 11 points, effectively putting them out of reach of the play-offs. 

They will have to brace themselves for a furious onslaught from Wasps who occupy 8th spot – a position they will desperately want to maintain as it guarantees them entrance into European competition next year. However, Bath and Wasps are neck-&-neck on overall points, meaning that Wasps, actually, have a huge amount to play for.     

Round 8 was the last time these teams clashed – a game played at the Ricoh Arena and won by Saints, 22-17.
