Saints suffer injury setback

Date published: December 29 2016

Northampton Saints will be without the services of Calum Clark due to the knee injury the flanker suffered two weeks ago.

Clark picked up the injury during Saint’s 60-13 Champions Cup loss to Leinster on December 17 and subsequently missed their Premiership win over Sale Sharks the following week.

“Calum Clark will be a few more weeks away,” Saints boss Jim Mallinder told

“He’s sustained quite a bad knee injury so he will be out for a few weeks.”

Saints were also without the likes of Lee Dickson, George North, Jamie Elliott and Ahsee Tuala last Friday. But Mallinder said: “There’s a possibility we might have some of our injured backs back this weekend.”
