Harlequins has confirmed an exciting group of pre-season fixtures as it prepares for the start of the 2013-14 season.
Northampton Saints are going to be an extremely tough team to beat. Heineken Cup runners up last season, their only defeat in their last eight regular season matches in the Premiership was 15-27 at Gloucester on 19 April.
Northampton's Friday night form is strong, having not lost a Friday evening encounter in the Premiership since a trip to Leicester in April 2006, so let's make sure we make Fortress Stoop as daunting a place to visit by making your voices heard and cheering on the Mighty Quins.
Director of Rugby, Conor O'Shea, says:
"One of the many positive aspects from last season was just how vociferous our support was at The Stoop, and there is no doubt, as we look to challenge the top end of the table in all competitions, that support will become an integral part of our success. The more difficult The Stoop becomes to visit for opposing teams the better, but we know as a group it is up to us to play the type of rugby with and without the ball that makes you really get behind us. We will look to play with an energy and enthusiasm that you know is Harlequins and the rest will follow."
Last time the two sides faced each other was on New Year's day at Northampton, when Quins came away with a memorable 16-13 win, after being two men and 10-3 down at half time.
