I’ve not been to the rugby for a while – the last game was 3 months ago and that was in Milton Keynes, so it was good to get back to Franklin’s Gardens – especially as the sun was out!
It was a huge game – Saints v local rivals Leicester, and with 1/3 of the England squad playing it was always going to be full-on. Just a shame that things didn’t quite go according to plan, with Leicester winning 35-21.

Here’s the pick of the pics
