Our first of two pre season friendlies takes place this Saturday against Northampton Saints at Franklin Gardens (KO 2.30pm)… .

The city of Northampton will be familiar to a number of Leinster supporters after our visit there prior to Christmas during the pool stages of the Heineken Cup. If you are not familiar with the rugby town check out our away guide from last season here (note the airport buses in the guide are not in operation this weekend).

This weekend is also a double header at Franklins Gardens, those attending our game are welcome to stay on afterwards as Northampton take on Moseley from 5pm.


For those going we would recommend you buy in Terrace block C so that the blue is together, tickets can still be purchased here 

Food & Beverage Options

Based on our experience when Leinster supporters visited Northampton in December, we can recommend visiting the Wig & Penn on St Giles Street in the town centre, they serve a wide rage of food, have many TV screens, a live band, free wifi and is open until late.
