The Saints have won their last five clashes against Leeds in all competitions. Leeds’ only previous victory at Franklin’s Gardens was 24-19 in the quarter-final of the Powergen Cup in January 2005.
Northampton Saints reached the Heineken Cup final with a superb semi-final victory over Perpignan at Milton Keynes on Sunday. The Saints only defeat in their last seven matches was 15-27 at Gloucester in the Premiership on 19 April.
Northampton require just two league points to guarantee a place in the Aviva Premiership Rugby semi-finals.
Leeds Carnegie need to obtain two more league points in this round than Newcastle do if they are to avoid the drop into the Championship, maybe less if Leeds win but the Falcons do not.
