Rugby News, Team News Saints team named for derby day

The Northampton Saints team has been named for the first East Midlands derby of the 2013/14 Aviva Premiership season.

Two changes have been made to the team which heads up the M1 to Leicester, with Tom Wood and Samu Manoa both returning to the pack.

Otherwise the Saints coaches have retained the starting line-up that beat Sale Sharks in Round 4 last Friday night.

It is also a big day for Stephen Myler and Lee Dickson, who will become Aviva Premiership’s record holders for the most starts as a half-back partnership. Saturday’s game will be the 59th occasion the two will have started as a pair in the black, green and gold, one ahead of Martyn Wood and current Saints coach Alex King.

The clash at a sold-out Welford Road is being shown exclusively live on BT Sport 1, with coverage starting at 3pm.

BBC Radio Northampton
will also be broadcasting the game, while supporters can keep up-to-date with all of the live stats and text commentary – and have their say on the action, too – at www.saintslive.co.uk, the club’s new match day second screen service, which is mobile and tablet friendly, too!
