Northampton moved into the play-off positions in the Aviva Premiership for at least 24 hours with a hard-fought 23-16 win over London Welsh amongst the rain and mud at Franklin's Gardens.

After three successive league defeats it was a welcome four points for Northampton, who saw backs coach Paul Grayson leave in the week.

In atrocious conditions it was always going to boil down to a forward battle with Northampton's tries coming through a penalty try and Ken Pisi and Ryan Lamb added 13 points with the boot. London Welsh had a penalty try of their own with Gordon Ross kicking three penalties and a conversion.
