Both the Northampton Saints and Wasps who meet at Franklin's Gardens on Saturday, are in the last chance saloon as far as qualification for the Anglo Welsh Cup semi-finals is concerned. Both clubs lie in second place in the qualifying Pools, and both trail the Pool leaders by four points going into Saturday's final round of fixtures.

With London Wasps controversial move to the Ricoh Arena Stadium in Coventry just before Christmas, this has effectively becoming something of a derby, although it may take some while before the followers of both clubs to think of it in those terms. Northampton Saints, who have been beaten in two of the last three finals of this competition, lasting winning the Cup in 2010, found themselves knocked off the top of the Pool last weekend, and replaced by the Cardiff Blues, after they slipped to defeat at their greatest rivals and neighbours in the East Midlands, the Leicester Tigers.

Wasps meanwhile were beaten in an astonishing game at the Ricoh, going down 42-45 against the Blues, who triumphed thanks to a last gasp try from Miles Normandale. Although they have only won a solitary Pool match, Wasps remain in with a chance of overhauling the Tigers, thanks to an incredible five bonus points from just three games played.
