During the regular season, Leicester Tigers completed a season double over the Saints.

Interestingly though they have lost two of their last three on home turf in Premiership Rugby against Northampton

There have been two previous semi-final meetings between the East Midlands rivals.

The head-to-head form that stands at a win and a loss for each, the victors being the home side on the day on both occasions.

Leicester Tigers have been so dominant at home this season.

Can they make it one more win on the board at Welford Road?

The Leicester Tigers -10 handicap is at 10/11 for Premiership Rugby* (odds recorded 17:11 GMT on June 9th, 2022 at William Hill).


Northampton Saints Preview – Saints with an uphill task

The Saints came on strongly at the end of the regular season to hold off Gloucester for a top-four finish.

They had to win on the final day of the regular season to confirm the fourth place.

The Saints did so with a comfortable success over the Newcastle Falcons at Franklin’s Gardens.

In the match outright for Saturday’s Premiership Rugby betting the Saints are 7/2 underdogs* (odds recorded 17:11 GMT on June 9th, 2022 at William Hill).

The Northampton Saints are into their tenth Premiership Rugby semi-final.

Their record from those previous is not great, winning only two of them.

One of those happened to be against Leicester in 2014, but it was on home turf at the Gardens.

The Saints have lost only one of their last seven Premiership Rugby matches.

That was a road loss at Saracens.

Northampton Saints exploded into red-hot scoring form and tallied 40 tries in their last seven matches.

They have reached at least 32 points in each of their last six fixtures.

Can they carry that forward and challenge the Tigers?
