Northampton Saints are still battling for a top-four finish and a positive result at Franklin’s Gardens on Friday will strengthen their chance.

Harlequins are third and in a much more comfortable position. But they still have work to do to get over the finishing line.

Those recent back to back home wins for Northampton came after winning one of their previous fixtures.

Their current four-match winning streak, home and away, came after four defeats in a row.

Northampton Saints have proven to be a streaky team.

Their head-to-head record against Quins is not hot at the moment as Northampton have lost their last four against them.

The last time that they overturned a halftime deficit at home in the league was in 2019.

So they need a big first half to hang in this match.

On home turf in the league, Northampton Saints have won 7 of their last 8 against Harlequins.

How badly they need to put another win on the board.


Harlequins Preview – Can Quins past the test?

Harlequins are finishing the regular season strong after beating league leaders Leicester Tigers.

That was the sixth Premiership Rugby win in a row for Quins.

In the match outright, they are 4/7 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 20:52 GMT on April 28th, 2022 at William Hill).

The last time that they won seven league matches on the spin was in 2012.

Harlequins took a win on their most recent visit to Franklin’s Gardens, which was in November 2020.

That succeeded for them there, ending a nine-match losing streak they had been on at the ground.

Away from home in Premiership Rugby, Quins have won their last three.

Harlequins have scored a total of 79 points combined in their last two leagues away wins.

Those victories were at Bristol and London Irish.

Their victory over Leicester last weekend put them on the brink of securing a top-four finish.
