Experienced lock Christian Day insists there is no panic in the Saints camp after back-to-back defeats.

And he says he and his team-mates can use memories of last season’s title triumph to get them back on track.

Saints were thrashed by Clermont Auvergne in a Champions Cup quarter-final three weeks ago and lost to Exeter Chiefs eight days later.

But they endured similarly difficult defeats at the same stage of last season, losing three matches in a row before bouncing back to claim Aviva Premiership glory.

And ahead of Saturday’s renewal of rivalries with Saracens, the team Saints beat in the league showpiece at Twickenham, Day said: “We had a similar run of bad form last season and went on to win two trophies so we’re not panicking.

“We’ve got a big challenge this weekend - top versus second - and we’re looking forward to it.

“You’re going to have bad runs in the season. Not many teams go unbeaten the whole year.

“What’s important is how you come back after those defeats, learn your lessons and ultimately it’s going to come down to a play-off and a final.

“We’re looking forward to the big games.”
