Northampton is up for exciting games in the European Champion tournament that is currently on in France. As the country struggles under extreme cold weather conditions, the Northampton team along with the others would be stepping up the heat in the group games that would be played this weekend.
The Northampton Saints would be facing Castres which is a French team and it would be a challenge that the team would be up against. That is also because the previous four games proved to be challenging for the team. They were able to win only in one of the four games.
This is not a fate that the team has suffered alone as the Worcester Warriors have also been suffering similar challenges in this European tournament this season. For the Northampton team there are two games left to play in order to qualify for the group round in the European Rugby Champions Cup.
The team would be facing the Castres against whom they had a loss earlier. This would definitely make it a challenge that the team has to win over. There are international players who have joined up with this team and it is hoped that they will be able to help the outfit to gain some victories. Christmas has been tough on them, providing the team with a defeat against the Castres as well as against Leinster. Castres would also be looking to up their scores in order to make it past the qualifying rounds.
The Northamptons need to showcase some of the skills that they showed when they played against Bristol Rugby. The win that they had against this team, involved some successful strategies. It now remains to be seen whether the team can salvage some of the opportunities that remain for them to get back on their feet in the forthcoming European games.
