Dylan Hartley Exclusive - That Red Card, The Lions & The Captaincy Of Northampton Saints

It's two months since Northampton Saints captain Dylan Hartley was shown the red card during the Premiership Final against Leicester Tigers at Twickenham.

It cost Hartley his place on the Lions tour to Australia and in the eyes of many supporters it cost the Saints the final, but for the fifth season in a row Hartley will be Saints captain.

Dylan Hartley talks exclusively to BBC Radio Northampton Sports Editor Graham McKechnie, while Stuart talks to former Saints team manager Lennie Lawrence, and to Former Saints and England player Ian Hunter - both part of the BBC Radio Northampton commentary team.
