Ansbro and the Saints will face Saracens in the semi-final on 14 March

Northampton centre Joe Ansbro dedicated the club's Anglo-Welsh Cup victory over Leicester to long-serving Saints stalwart Bruce Reihana.

The former captain made his 200th appearance for Northampton and played his part in Saturday's 23-11 win which secured a semi-final against Saracens.

"It was Bruce's 200th game and we wanted to do it for him more than anything else," said Ansbro.

"But we've also got a home semi-final which is brilliant."

He added: "We knew it would be a toughie because it's always a battle against Leicester.

"They're a great side but we were fired up for it."

Northampton will entertain Saracens in the semi-final at Franklin's Gardens on 14 March.
