I never would have expected Saints to beat Quins like this

There have been two or three games lately where afterwards I've been saying to people "that is the best Saints have played this season" and now there is another to add to the mix. For the fast half Saints...

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

Sometimes they are brilliant, sometimes they are crazy. That's young people for you.

Young Saints so close to thrilling comeback win as league takes a break for Premiership Cup

With no A league running this season Saints have been deprived of the Wanderers as a window into the future so the Premiership Cup is a timely insight into developing talent. While some of the big names are away for...

Trees snap as violent storm passes over Northampton

A violent storm passed over Northamptonshire today breaking trees like kindling and blocking roads. Police urged people to stay indoors as hundreds of wind related incidents, mainly blocked roads, were reported in the aftermath. We were just praying for the COP26...
