Saturday rugby will be a rarity for Saints in November, following the confirmation of the latest block of fixtures.

Jim Mallinder’s men face five games in the month, but only one - the LV= Cup home game against Newcastle Falcons on November 1 - will take place on a Saturday.

The LV= Cup round two game at Scarlets has been arranged for Friday, November 7, with an Aviva Premiership fixture against Exeter Chiefs following seven days later.

None of those matches will be televised but the mouthwatering showdown with Saracens at Allianz Park will be on BT Sport and has been moved to Sunday, November 23.

The final game of the month, the league trip to London Welsh, is also on the Sabbath, at the Kassam Stadium, however it is not being televised.

Saints’ November schedule

Saturday 1: Newcastle Falcons (h), LV= Cup round one, 3pm

Friday 7: Scarlets (a), LV= Cup round two, 7.30pm

Friday 14: Exeter (h), Aviva Premiership round seven, 7.45pm

Sunday 23: Saracens (a), Aviva Premiership round eight, 1pm, BT Sport
