Northampton will travel to Biarritz hoping that they can leave their league form behind them. Perhaps with the pressure of the relegation threat gone for one week they can raise their game and provide an upset in San Sebastien. Although the odds will be stacked against them as Biarritz have enjoyed several big wins at the Anoeta.

Biarritz will be looking for a hat trick of victories and in all honesty they should achieve that if the 2 games they&#39;ve already played are anything to go by.

I honestly reckon the Saints can edge a win here , Biarritz have hardly looked impressive in the pool stage of the competition , both at the Stadia plaplaplaplapla frenchword pla or at the gardens. And afterall Saints tend to win games which are not important and seeing as the HC really isnt our priority at the moment i can see us winning this game.

I hope we do as i got some good odds from Ladbrokes for Saints to win the HC and get relegated in the same season :D

A tenuous connection in that he is the Patron saint of FISH, not Saints. However, Northampton are fishing for a win, and may land a big fish........so, ok then.......

Interesting that there&#39;s no deadball line painted in the San Sebastian. Or a score area for that matter.

Beer&#39;n&#39;Chips lead 3 - 0 at halftime. Half because the Saints have really fronted up and taken the game to them, but also half because the Basqumen simply havn&#39;t been able to put it through their hands.

Not the most entertaing games when it comes to eye candy, but my god there are some big hits going in; There&#39;ll be some sore bodies tomorrow.

I&#39;m kinda embarressed after predicting a 50 points difference in Biarritz&#39; favor :o :mellow:

What a ****ty game! The least crappy side won. The WASP can already prepare the final.

HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHaaaaaaaaaaaa .... :blink:

Spenser is a genius - Frank, that is.

Saints may keep the score low against Wasps, but can&#39;t see them breaking the defence. But good luck!

And there may be a solution to the HEC crisis - just rename it the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

well given how ****e Wasps&#39; away form has been it&#39;ll hardly be a surprise if they lose at Coventry.

What must the odds be on Northampton winning the entire thing...

If they do get to the final, they could face Leicester, which would be the equivalent of Liverpool vs Man United in the Champions League

Fantastic!!!

not much I think the Scarlets have it in the bag at this stage.

I wonder what would happen if Saints ended up winning the Heineken Cup and finishing bottom of the premiership.

This stage isn&#39;t the end of the tournament though. As I said to PeeJay, if the Scarlets can keep the ball then they have a good chance but if Leicesters pack front up then they&#39;ll starve them of posession and with that take away all of the gutsy play the welshmen showed against Munster.

I&#39;m hoping that won&#39;t happen (Only Leicester fans are) but looking at the scarlets current form in Europe I can&#39;t see that happening. :)

Such a fantastic set of results....why are they letting this competition die?

Chuffed when I heard the final score from San Sebastian, I was bouncing round my car when 5live read the score out...all the other folk at the traffic lights must have though I&#39;d gone nuts.

It&#39;s interesting how England had a very average 6 Nations, but then the club sides come out with some great results against French and Irish opposition.

75% English semi-final line up.

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it RFU...

I STILL can&#39;t believe we did it! I thought we were going to get totally creamed and I know neither of the teams played great but it&#39;s still amazing I really hope it gives the boys some much-needed confidence more than anything...... :)
I think we can avoid relegation and maybe win the HC!

You should not expect that all the teams Northampton will face play as bad as what was shown last Saturday in Anoeta Stadium.
