Team News Saints introduce six for Sixways trip

The Northampton Saints team that heads to Worcester in the ninth round of the Aviva Premiership shows six changes from the team which beat Newcastle last weekend.

The Saints welcome back Dylan Hartley and Tom Wood back into the team after both missed last Saturday’s clash. Also back for the trip to Sixways are wing Ken Pisi (Samoa) and lock Samu Manoa (USA), who have both been away with their respective national teams over the past two weekends.

With Ben Foden ruled out with a knee injury, James Wilson picking up a knock in training, and Kahn Fotuali’i and Jamie Elliott both carrying injuries, Glenn Dickson wears 15 with Dom Waldouck coming into the centres.

Junior World Championship winner Tom Stephenson comes onto the bench to cover the outside backs for a potential Aviva Premiership debut, along with Vasily Artemyev, another international absentee.

You can hear the thoughts of director of rugby Jim Mallinder, captain Dylan Hartley and number eight Sam Dickinson in the Saints’ official podcast, available for FREE on SoundCloud by CLICKING HERE!

And with Saturday’s game not being shown live on TV the best way to stay in touch is with the text commentary and live Opta stats available at www.saintslive.co.uk – available for FREE and suitable for all devices.
