  3. Good win from Northampton but will i be cheeky and say against Leeds should the winning margin have been more but Saints on a roll but where is Geraghty going to play as from what I read he was excellent today at 10.
    But are we reading too much into it to as it only Leeds after all.

    The BP was won before half time. Saints shut up shop for the 2nd half, including playing all the subs.

    Geraghty was class, but my MOTM was Jon Clarke - he's getting back to his form of 4 years ago when England came calling last.

    No idea.
  7. More and more i'm beginning to think that a Flutey/Clarke combination will do the job for England in the 6 Nations, with Geraghty playing at 12 in the AIs. Very exciting stuff from a Northampton team jam-packed with young English talent. Hartley has looked outstanding and Courtney Lawes is developing very quickly. Like Munstermuffin, i hope Geraghty can find form at 12 when Myler returns.

    Think if Northampton can keep majority together and add 1 or 2 over years when needed thay can be major force in GP and Europe and be up challenging on a regular basis but think that Geraghty and Myler can be settled partnership at 10-12 for England as well as Saints. Courtney Lawes is a giant of a man too that is as said developing rapidly and getting stronger every game .... Future International caps are destined for him
