Northampton are ready to close in on an unlikely Heineken Cup quarter-final place on Friday night, and skipper Steve Thompson has vowed: "We will give
it our all."
The Zurich Premiership strugglers are guaranteed last-eight status if they beat Glasgow at Franklin's Gardens and secure a bonus point. And Saints
received a huge lift going into the game after their England star Ben Cohen ended speculation about his future by signing a new three-year contract.
The World Cup winning-wing had been linked to a move away from Northampton earlier this season. At least three other Zurich Premiership clubs were
monitoring him, but 26-year-old Cohen has now put pen to paper at a club he joined as a teenager.
