Northampton Saints have lost just two of their last seven Aviva Premiership Rugby encounters, both away from home, to Bath and Newcastle Falcons in rounds 14 and 15 respectively.
The Saints have won their last five matches at Franklin’s Gardens in all tournaments since Leinster beat them there in the European Champions Cup in December, whilst their most recent loss at the venue in Premiership Rugby was to Newcastle in round 9.
Leicester Tigers have lost just one of their last six first team matches: 15-34 at home to Exeter Chiefs in Aviva Premiership Rugby on 3 March.
Leicester have won their last two away games, at Harlequins in Premiership Rugby and at Saracens in the semi-final of the AngloWelsh Cup (the final being on neutral ground), and have not won three away games in a row since December 2015.
The Tigers have won their last six matches against the Saints in all tournaments since their 19-23 reversal at Franklin’s Gardens in Premiership Rugby in December 2014 – although just one of those victories was played in Northampton.
