Northampton Saints fans hoping to catch a regular sighting of new signings and British & Irish Lions heroes George North and Alex Corbisiero are going to have to stump up for the most expensive seat in the Premiership, according to reports.

The Rugby Paper reports that the cheapest adult seat season ticket at Franklin's Gardens this season will set you back £367 - which is significantly more than Premiership rivals Saracens who are charging £209 for their cheapest seat at Allianz Park. The Saints are also reportedly the only club in English rugby's top flight to charge over £300 for their base adult season ticket.

Fans hoping to catch Premiership champions Leicester on a regular basis at Welford Road will have to pay £352 for the cheapest seat although season ticket sales of over 12,000 for 2013-14 before the end of the last campaign would suggest it is a price Tigers fans are willing to pay. An equivalent package at newly-promoted side Newcastle Falcons will cost £300. The cheapest season ticket option is available at Exeter and Gloucester who are both charging £195 for a place on the terraces.

Gloucester fans will also be tempted by junior season tickets starting at £69 at Kingsholm while younger supporters could pay as much as £669 for a regular place at Quins' Twickenham Stoop home this season.
