THERE will be a cup-tie atmosphere when Wasps aim to secure their place in the Aviva Premiership play-offs in a tough match against rivals Northampton Saints at the Ricoh Arena this Sunday.
With both teams currently in third and fifth place respectively, this is a must-win match for both clubs – and you could be there courtesy of the Observer.
Wasps and Northampton Saints will be boosted by the return of their England internationals fresh from their heroics in Paris on Saturday night when Eddie Jones’ men secured the Six Nations Grand Slam with a 31-21 victory over France.
James Haskell, Joe Launchbury, Elliot Daly and Matt Mullan will be back in Wasps’ squad while England skipper Dylan Hartley, Courtney Lawes, Paul Hill and Kieran Brookes will be available for selection for Northampton Saints.
We have a pair of tickets to give away for this 3pm kick-off on April 3, and the lucky winner will be able to soak up the pre-match atmosphere in the Fan Village in the Jaguar Exhibition Hall.
Live music will be provided by ‘The Wired’ and there will be a host of activities for children including the Wasps Interactive Zone, a large inflatable tag-rugby pitch, the Tryline Tussle and Kick for Goal.
Wasps are dedicating the game to Marie Curie to raise awareness and valuable funds for the UK’s leading charity for people living with a terminal illness and their families so look out for their volunteers who will be collecting money throughout the venue.
A contribution from each match ticket sold will go to the charity and tickets for Wasps v Northampton Saints are available from just £15 for adults and under-10s go free. They are available from www.wasps.co.uk or by ringing 024 7678 6411.
