Three Northampton Saints players are swapping rugby boots for flying suits as they join aerobatic team, The Blades in the skies above Sywell.

George Pisi, Ben Foden and Alex Waller will be at Sywell Aerodrome as they're given the ride of their lives by former Red Arrows pilots.

The trio are being treated after picking up awards at the Saints' End of Season Awards dinner.

George Pisi won two prizes: Players' Player of the Season award - voted for by the Saints squad - and the Supporters' Player of the Season award, in which he received nearly 20 percent of the total votes cast.

Ben Foden and Alex Waller were the other two players to receive their awards for Try of the Season and Young Player of the Season respectively.

Alongside them will be a charity prize winner who won an auction prize to spend a day here flying with the rugby players.
