There's a repeat of the 2011 final in Heineken Cup Pool 1 as Leinster travel to face Northampton Saints at Franklin's Gardens.

The hosts are favourites at 13/20 to come out on top in the crucial clash, but Leinster have big-match nous aplenty, and a bet on them at 5/4 could pay off.

There shouldn't be much in this one, and with that in mind, betting on the scores to remain all-square at half-time followed by a Saints win is attractive at 18/1.

The same bet with the Dubliners emerging on top is listed at an enticing 25/1.

Leinster have indeed been there and done that time and again in the Heineken Cup. But they are not the force of old, while Saints are going from strength to strength, and are unbeaten in their last seven games.

With that in mind, and given home advantage, we think a narrow win for Jim Mallinder's men is on the cards, by around 4 points.
