Alex King stressed Saints’ desire to fight on all three fronts after the 33-6 LV= Cup success against Gloucester at Franklin’s Gardens.

Two tries apiece from Samoan wing Ken Pisi and replacement scrum-half Alex Day secured a comprehensive victory.

It was Saints’ seventh victory in 10 games in all competitions this season as they go from strength to strength in the Premiership, Heineken Cup and Anglo-Welsh competition.

And attack coach King is now eager to see the good work continue when his men aim to back up the big show against Gloucester in another LV= Cup game at London Irish next week.

“We’ve got one or two sore bodies, but we’ll take a good team down to London Irish next week because it’s important for this club that we fight on all three fronts,” said King.

“I’m delighted we got the bonus point against Gloucester. I thought all the subs did well when they came on.

“We were thoroughly professional and it was a good Gloucester team we were playing.

“I’ve got high hopes for all of our young players.”
