Northampton Saints ease past Gloucester in LV Cup

Northampton Saints brought their good form into the Anglo Welsh LV Cup when they beat Gloucester 33-6 at Franklin’s Gardens.

Northampton Saints are currently second in the Aviva Premiership and despite having several players away on international duty they brushed Gloucester aside in the LV Cup.

A brace of tries apiece from Ken Pisi and Christian Day helped Northampton
Saints to the comfortable victory.

Pisi’s double saw the hosts steam into the lead, coming as they did in the
23rd and 29th minute respectably.

Day’s two, both in the final ten minutes, put the icing on the cake for Saints,
and secured a bonus point.

Gloucester’s only points came through the boot of Freddie Burns.
