Saints to wear Rob Horne t-shirt at Kingsholm

Northampton Saints will wear a special-edition Rob Horne t-shirt when they warm-up for their opening Premiership clash against Gloucester Rugby at Kingsholm this Saturday (3 pm kick-off, live on BT Sport).

The Saints’ matchday squad of 23 will each wear the commemorative t-shirt in honour of Rob Horne, who was forced to retire last season after suffering a career-ending injury.

Each t-shirt will have ‘Horne 13’ emblazoned on the back and details of ‘The Derby’ on the chest – Saints’ Premiership game against Leicester Tigers at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 6 October, which will raise money for the former Saint and Australian international.

“We are very proud to wear the t-shirts in Rob’s honour,” said Piers Francis, who played in the centres with Horne.

“Rob was a brilliant rugby player and an even better bloke; he’s greatly missed around the Gardens by all the players and staff.”

The special edition t-shirts, which are priced at £15 (sizes S – 4XL) with all of the profits being donated to Rob Horne, are available online HERE from today and in the Saints Store at Franklin’s Gardens from Monday.

Saints can also confirm a number of other fundraising activities which will take place at ‘The Derby’.

Saints will donate £5 on behalf of every paying season ticket holder
Supporter facility to donate during match ticket purchase
£1.50 donation from every match day programme sold at ‘The Derby’
Text-to-donate facility and bucket shakes at Twickenham Stadium
Matchday auction across all hospitality areas at Twickenham
Saints are also very pleased to announce that club partner Carlsberg has made a sizeable donation to the Rob Horne fundraising efforts.

Carlsberg is a long-time supporter of Northampton Saints, having partnered with the Club for more than 30 years, and sponsor the Carlsberg Stand at Franklin’s Gardens.

“Carlsberg recognises the contribution Rob made on and off the pitch,” commented Bruce Ray, Vice President On Trade at Carlsberg.

“As the Carlsberg Players’ Player of the season, we want to support Rob and his aspiration to get greater awareness for Brachial Plexus injuries.

“As a long-term partner of Saints, Carlsberg wanted to support in any way possible.”

Sarges’ Preview

The first Premiership game of the New Year, and with a new tactical coach on board we can hope that it signals a fresh start for 2018. Saints v Gloucester on Saturday 6th January at 3pm, with TV coverage on BTSport3.
The last meeting between the two teams was at Castle Grim on 7th October and the Cherry & Whites were the victors by 29-24, that scoreline flattered by a late comeback by the Saints (just a bit too late to make up the defecit). This was our first defeat after a run of four victories had seen us briefly on top of the table, but it was to be the start of seven successive league losses.
Gloucester’s origins lie with the Romans, but here’s a bit of later Anglo-Saxon history, courtesy of the city’s visitor website…
After the Fall of Rome, Gloucester was captured by the Anglo-Saxons following the decisive battle Dyrham in 577. The Mercian king, Osric of Hwicce, founded an abbey dedicated to St Peter on the site of today’s Cathedral. By the tenth century, Gloucester continued to be an important centre in the Kingdom of Mercia, and was famously re-planned and re-fortified by Queen Aethelflaed (daughter of Alfred the Great) as a defence against the marauding Danes. The core street layout survives to this day. Aethelflaed also founded the New Minster church of St Oswald (c 900 AD) which became a shrine of great importance following the installation the seventh century king and saint’s bones. image001.png@01D385BE.AD52C6C0“/>
