Northampton Saints will want to keep up the pressure on Munster with a home victory over French champions Perpignan.

Last season’s Challenge Cup winners have beaten both the Red Army and Treviso at Franklin’s Gardens this season and a third home win would send them to Thomond Park still in the hunt for winning top spot in Pool One.

Perpignan were left shell-shocked by the home defeat to Munster before the Christmas break.And they are realistically only playing for pride on their visit to the Guinness Premiership outfit.
