Courtney Lawes believes Saints’ Friday night clash with Harlequins will be a great spectacle.

The England star knows exactly what to expect from Quins, having lined up alongside a number of their players on international duty.

Harlequins have claimed five wins from their past six games and are one of the form teams in the Premiership.

But Saints have won all five of their league matches at Franklin’s Gardens this season, scoring 24 tries in the process.

And Lawes said: “We know their ins and outs and pretty much everyone on the team I know personally so it will be an interesting clash and a very, very good game to watch.

“They’re a good team, they always will be. They’ll bring a lot of flair and they’ll be looking to pull off an upset. It’s our job to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
