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 northamptonchron.co.uk.
“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.”
