As it's "Big Game 10", being played on the Saturday between X-mas and New Year when people are a little lost for something meaningful to do besides traipse around the sales and has been advertised heavily for the last couple of months, I guess there may be a few more of us than 12,000 in attendance (Sm151)

I'll assume one of the Quins fan will be over to tell us but normally this fixture is played across the road at Twickers. One can only expect that the fortunes of both clubs at the moment play a part in it not being so.

Robbie, it definitely is being played at the bigger of the two Twickenham venues. We received our tickets from Ticketmaster in the post this week.

I think I'll come with you as these rose tinted ones of mine are showing their age this year and even I'm finding it hard to fight the despondency and malaise that our poor form has brought upon us all.

About 55,000 tickets sold so far!



Harlequins, (was once) probably the best rugby club in the world!

That's excellent news for me. I stopped subscribing to BT Sport a few years ago when they jacked up the price.

I guess I missed the Sarcasm "*".. i meant to indicate that, given the current level of performance and results, probably best that as few people as possible see us and that being on the first terrestrial tv show in Aviva prem history might not be the best advert for Saints rugby.. of course, by then we might have resolved the issues and be a real force again...

Hopefully we can learn from watching the Quins Sarries game. Its going to require plenty of old fashioned hard work to get past Quins. Sarries may not have been on top form last week, but they ran some lovely lines in attack, Quins did a fantastic job to keep them out.



Once a scrum half .... always a scrum half
