Rugby News, Team News Saints name team to play Ospreys

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Sunday’s Heineken Cup Round 2 clash against the Ospreys.

Following the pattern of the opening six matches of the season the Saints coaches have made several changes to the starting line-up which earned a losing bonus point from Castres in Round 1.

Jamie Elliott and Lee Dickson come in at wing and scrum-half respectively, with Alex Waller replacing the injured Alex Corbisiero in the front row and Phil Dowson and Samu Manoa both coming into the back row.

Ken Pisi, Kahn Fotuali’i and Calum Clark all drop to the bench, with Ethan Waller and GJ Van Velze coming into the match day squad.

Tickets for the visit of the Ospreys, who have a number of British Lions and international players in their squad, have been in high demand all week and there is now limited availability.
