Saints rout Edinburgh

Northampton became the first team this season to qualify for the Heineken Cup quarter-finals as they beat Edinburgh 37-0 to claim with their fifth consecutive win in the competition

It was a far from vintage performance from the Saints but it was convincing enough against a dogged but poor Edinburgh side, who never looked like threatening Saints' unbeaten European record.

The game was a very uninspiring affair up until the last eight minutes when Saints scored three tries all from excellent wing, Paul Diggin, who finished with a total of four.

Brian Mujati claimed the other try with Stephen Myler kicking 10 points and Joe Ford booting two.
