Figure image
Leicester Tigers and Northampton Saints meet twice at Franklin's Gardens on Saturday - in the National Academy League and then in the Aviva Premiership.

The respective under-18 sides are in action on Pitch 1 on Franklin’s Gardens at 11am, with both teams enjoying an unbeaten start to their league campaign so far.
All supporters are welcome to this fixture and there is no admission charge. There will be refreshment and toilet facilities adjacent to Pitch 1.
The first Aviva Premiership Rugby meeting of the East Midlands rivals is at 2pm in a game which is already confirmed as a sell-out, with the two teams meeting for the first time since last season’s semi-final in May.
A third meeting – in the Premiership ‘A’ League – is at Franklin’s Gardens on Monday, December 29 (2pm) before Tigers host Saints in the LV= Cup at Welford Road on Saturday, January 13 (3pm). Tickets for this fixture are available now at the Tigers ticket office. Call in at Welford Road, phone 0116 319 8888 (option 2) or click here to book online.
