In Pictures | The East Midlands Derby

The stage may be different this season, but the East Midlands Derby remains one of the rugby calendar’s biggest fixtures. 

Leicester Tigers face local rivals Northampton Saints in Round 6 of the 2018/19 Gallagher Premiership season at Twickenham this Saturday (3.00pm).

This year’s encounter will be played in aid of Rob Horne, the former Saints centre who was forced to retire earlier this year when he suffered nerve damage in his arm in the last meeting at Welford Road. 

Over the years, the rivalry between the two teams has brought about some of the game’s most memorable matches. Check out some of the fixture’s iconic photos in our gallery above.
