The Leicester Tigers who top Pool 4 in the Anglo Welsh Cup, will welcome their neighbours the Northampton Saints, who head Pool 1, to Welford Road Stadium on Saturday in Round 3 of the qualifying phase of this season's tournament. The Tigers go into Saturday's derby on a five game losing streak, including back to back defeats in the Champions Cup over the past fortnight. The Anglo-Welsh Cup however, is one competition where they have been able to find some joy in their results, with successive victories to date. Bath were beaten at the Rec 21-20, despite the Tigers being outscored in tries 2-3, before, the Newport Gwent Dragons were trounced at Welford Road 42-3.

The Leicester Tigers are the only side in Pool 4 to have won both their games to date, and have a three point lead over second placed Gloucester. The Northampton Saints, like their greatest rivals, have also won both Anglo-Welsh Cup fixtures that they have played this season. Beating Newcastle Falcons 24-16 at Kingston park, before making it two out of two when they hosted the Cherry and Whites of Gloucester, and beat them 19-13. The intensity of the rivalry between these East Midlands clubs can be gauged by the fact that despite this being a competition in which clubs field less than full strength teams in the qualifying phase, the game will be close to 26,000 sell out on Saturday.

The Anglo Welsh Cup looks as if it offers the Tigers the best opportunity they have this season of claiming some silverware, given that they were eliminated at the Pool stage in Europe, and are struggling to make the top four in the Premiership, which would them a play-off place. They currently top Pool 3, with a two point advantage over Wasps who are their only realistic challengers for a spot in the last four, given that the Newcastle Falcons and the Scarlets have only a single point apiece. Saints, who were beaten in last season’s final by the Exeter Chiefs, lead Pool 2 by a single point from the Cardiff Blues. Win or lose at Welford Road Stadium, nothing will be decided this weekend for the Premiership leaders, who are also through to the last eight of the Champions Cup.
