This match was originally scheduled for 5 December but was postponed due to snow at Headingley Carnegie.
Leeds Carnegie obtained a vital victory at home to London Irish on Sunday – their first Aviva Premiership Rugby win since New Year’s Day.
Northampton Saints continue to struggle in 2011, and succumbed to a sixth straight Premiership reversal at Exeter Chiefs on Sunday: this represents the Saints’ poorest run since they were relegated in season 2004/05.
Northampton have already beaten Leeds this season in the Anglo-Welsh Cup and in fact have won the last four clashes with the Yorkshiremen.
Referee: Chris White (187th Premiership game)
