After a two-week interruption for the Cup it's back to league action this week. The Saints travel down to Bristol on Friday night for a 7.45pm kickoff at Ashton Gate. For some reason that is difficult to determine, 4 of this weekend's 6 fixtures are on Friday night, with 1 on Saturday and 1 on Sunday. Perhaps they expect everyone to be Christmas shopping this weekend!

If you are on the Supporters Club coach - it departs from Franklin's Gardens at 3.30pm. Everything at Ashton Gate is cashless, but please bring a bit of loose change with you for the raffle and for the driver's tip.

The Bears are currently down in 11th in the league with 14 points. Saints are 5th with 20 points. Both teams will be thinking that their recent form does not reflect their true potential. For the Saints, this game see a return of the international contingent that has been missing during November. We must hope that can give the team the boost that it needs. And my weekly plea (usually ignored by the team) to cut down on the penalty count.

It's Leicester's turn to take a break, but as they are 10 points ahead of everyone else their league position is assured. Second place Saracens are at home to Sale and I'm inclined to go for a homer there. Harlequins are at home to London Irish, which again looks like the points staying at the Stoop (though Irish have provided a couple of scares this season).

4th place Exeter travel to Bath, the latter having yet to win a game this season. As Exeter and Saints are on the same points a win for the Aquae Sulis legion would do us a favour, however I think that match will go the way of the Chiefs. Gloucester are two points below us and travel to Wasps. Not too far apart on their recent form but a home win looks likely here.

The three other teams close to Saints are Newcastle, Sale and Irish. As mentioned above, all of them are up against stiff opposition so will probably stay below us after Sunday.

Back to the 1947-48 season and here's how the Chronicle & Echo saw the Bristol home game that season. The mud has long gone from Franklin's Gardens, if not from all the rest of the Premiership.

Regretfully we must let you know that we are unable to run the "Christmas special" coaches to Twickenham. We have (and apparently, we are not alone) been let down by the parking management for this event. We have been trying unsuccessfully to book parking slots since SEPTEMBER, with both Harlequins and Twickenham.

Since we finally discovered 2 weeks ago that there were no coach spaces available at either the Stoop or Twickenham, we and Hunters have been searching for alternatives with no luck. The way that this was handled by these organisations is in our experience, unprecedented, and we are taking steps to ensure this cannot happen again. Unfortunately, this does not help with this event, and we cannot even find parking elsewhere due to drop off/pick up restriction.

We can only apologise to those supporters who were looking forward to travelling with us and tell you that it doesn’t affect the coaches to Tigers in February, For which a very special offer will be available on Monday.

Round 2 of the cup means a Friday night trip down to The Stoop to take on Harlequins, with a 7.45pm kickoff. No TV coverage so, for other than the few making the trip down to west London, it will be a listen-in on Radio Northampton. No Supporters Club coach as there just wasn't sufficient demand to make it viable.

Both we and Quins lost in round 1, which means that both will be wanting to make an impression this weekend. Both teams are shorn of players on international duty so I'm reluctant to make any sort of prediction.

I probably should have used this extract from the 1947-48 brochure last week but it's still a worthwhile read...
