Ken Pisi is hoping for more of the same when Saints face Exeter at Sandy Park tonight (kick-off 7pm).

The Samoan wing scored against the Chiefs in a 38-11 Northampton victory at Franklin’s Gardens in September.

He also crossed the whitewash in the league game at Sandy Park last January, grabbing Saints’ first try in a 30-19 success.

And Pisi is now eager to help his team secure another victory, which would be their ninth in a row in all competitions.

“We’re looking forward to the game, but we know they’re going to be a tough team,” said the 24-year-old.

“We beat them there in the league last year. We defended well in that game, but when it opened up for us we took opportunities. We need to do that again.

“I scored a try down there. I just remember getting the ball and finishing it off. Fodes (Ben Foden) did all the hard work.

“We’ve been on an awesome run recently and hopefully that can continue. The boys have been playing their parts and we’re enjoying it.”
