Myler stars for Saints

An 18-point haul from fly-half Stephen Myler reignited Northampton Saints' play-off challenge as they eased to a comfortable 23-13 victory over Leeds Carnegie at Headingley.

The result sees the Saints move back into the play-off places and reaffirms their title ambitions after a recent wobble.

Leeds responded with a try from Danny Paul and eight points from the boot of stand-off Adrian Jarvis, but it now leaves the Yorkshire side rooted to the foot of the table having played a game more than nearest rivals Newcastle.
