Northampton Saints progress to the European Rugby Challenge Cup quarter-finals after a 111-3 victory over Timisoara Saracens at Franklin’s Gardens.
The home fans were treated to some delightful attacking rugby as Ollie Sleightholme grabbed four tries, while Alex Mitchell ran in a hat-trick.
It was Luther Burrell who bagged the first try after three minutes and while Timisoara hit back through a Samoa penalty, that was as good as it got for the Romanian side, who were well beaten by a clinical Northampton side.
