It’s another thriller but this time Saints are the winners

Northampton Saints 27 - 22 Wasps * Dave Ikin focusses on a hard fought and exciting Saints win at Franklin's Gardens

Sometimes they are brilliant, sometimes they are crazy. That’s young people for you. The celebration of Alex Waller’s 231st appearance (a Premiership record) for Saints underlined it: there aren’t that many wizened old campaigners in green, black and gold.

There are, however, a few wizened young campaigners and Dave Ribbans on 100 games for Saints proved it with a Player of the Match performance.

The feel of the game was not that different to the past three performances. Scrums and lineouts were pretty reliable, Alex Mitchell was a handful, all the back line were a handful and yet the job was never completely done until the final whistle.

Dave Ikin was on hand to capture the action.
