This weekend the semi finals of the Guinness Premiership take place as Bath and Leicester face off, while Northampton Saints and Saracens do battle in what should be two fascinating match ups.
Saints host Saracens as the sides go into the match in second and third place on the table respectively. Saracens are the form side though, who actually beat Saints at Franklins Gardens just two weeks ago. Saints are out to get revenge.
"That hurt, hearing them singing as if they had won the league," said Saints boss Jim Mallinder. "For us, you can take motivation from a lot of things, and we are eagerly looking forward to that game next weekend now.
"We've had some close games against them this season. They are playing well - they played very well when they came to our place - and they've just won at Welford Road against Leicester. It will be an almighty battle, but we think we have a side to win that game."
In this video preview Saints stars Ben Foden, Stephen Myler, and Lee Dickson talk about the upcoming match. Does anyone fancy giving their predictions on both matches?
