Myler scored 13 points in the in the victory, taking them into the semi-finals next month.

"We're one game away from the Millennium Stadium, but we're back into the Premiership now, with three crucial games and we're still in the hunt for a play-off position," added Myler.

Saints will play Perpignan, who beat Toulon 29-25, at stadium:mk on Sunday, 1 May.
