Rugby News Seven to get Saints' weekend started early
When the Saints kick off this evening in Castres, the action will already be underway for seven Franklin's Gardeners back in England, an Academy septet on dual registration with Moseley or Coventry.
Mose will be looking to improve their recent fortunes in the Championship at Cross Keys, with the help of six of those loan-Saints, Alex Day and Will Hooley linking up as the half-back pairing while Adam Parkins is on the tight-head.
On the bench, a trio of Saints provide the front row cover, hooker Matt Williams and props Tom Warren and Danny Herriott also included in the matchday 22.
At the Butts Park Arena meanwhile, Coventry have rung the changes as they look to bounce back from their first defeat of the season last weekend at Blaydon, though prop Danny Hobbs-Awoyemi retains the number three shirt for the visit of Old Albanian in National League One.
We will of course bring you up to speed with how the Saints loanees go early next week.
