Saints start 2018 in style
Northampton managed to start the new year with a win against an in form Gloucester side.
We really needed that win . Far from prefect but a massive effort by all. Great to be able to move forward this year with something positive to build on. Thanks to all the fans for making the atmosphere and sticking with us.— Tom Wood (@tomwood678) January 7, 2018
“We gift wrapped the game to them. We were pretty poor throughout. Yes we scored a few tries but our execution was poor. They’re struggling and targeted our breakdown”— Gloucester Rugby (@gloucesterrugby) January 6, 2018

Newcastle's impressive recent form continued as they overcame league leaders Exeter.
1⃣2⃣ - @notz09 beat 1⃣2⃣ defenders for @FalconsRugby against Exeter, no player has managed more in a game this season, while his average of 7⃣ defenders beaten per 80 minutes is the best rate of any player in @premrugby this season.

Disappointing performance & result yesterday but credit to a strong Newcastle outfit. Fantastic effort by all the @ExeterChiefs supporters who made the long trip up to Newcastle yesterday. The support was first class and much appreciated by all the boys #thetribe— Gareth Steenson (@steeno10) January 8, 2018
