Rugby News, Team News Saints rotate for Twickenham trip

Despite a winning start to the Aviva Premiership campaign, director of rugby Jim Mallinder and the Northampton coaches have made four changes to the Saints team that heads to Harlequins on Friday night.

The Saints earned a maximum haul from their Aviva Premiership Round 1 victory over Exeter last week. However that has not stopped the coaches from bringing in James Wilson, Calum Clark, Samu Manoa and Kahn Fotuali’i, the latter for his first competitive start in the black, green and gold.

The quartet come in for George Pisi, Phil Dowson, Sam Dickinson and Lee Dickson respectively, who will all be at the Stoop on the replacements’ bench.

Friday’s game is being broadcast exclusively on BT Sport, which for one night only is free for all Sky (channels 413(HD)/426), Virgin Media (channels 547/549(HD)) and Freeview (channel 57) customers. Those who have subscribed to BT Sport already will be able to watch through their normal channels as well as by logging into the BT Sport website or App. Coverage starts at 7pm.
