Northampton Saints, the reigning English Champions came into Pool 5 of the Champions Cup with high hopes of making good progress in this season's tournament, after being parachuted into the Challenge Cup last season, where they defeated Bath in the final at the Cardiff Arms Park. However, their challenge got off to a stumbling start last weekend, when they travelled to Paris to face Racing Metro. That they failed to even secure a losing bonus-point will have come as a huge dent to their ambitions in the tournament.

They certainly had chances to register a valuable away win, but were unable to take advantage of two yellow cards shown to the Parisians, and having reduced the deficit to 11-13 with five minutes remaining, they proceeded to concede a last minute converted try, to leave them with nothing to show for their trip.

Saints must now pick themselves up on Saturday at Franklin's Gardens, when they host the Guinness PRO12's leading side, the Ospreys from Wales, who hammered Treviso from Italy in Round 1, with a try-scoring bonus point victory at the Liberty Stadium. The two sides have met in the tournament twice before, with the Northampton Saints triumphant on both occasions.
