Team News Saints name team to take on Harlequins

The Northampton Saints team has been named for tomorrow night’s Aviva Premiership Round 12 clash with Harlequins.

For the second week running the Saints host one of their Aviva Premiership top four rivals at Franklin’s Gardens, with the coaches making three changes to the team which beat Bath last Saturday.

Lee Dickson returns at scrum-half, swapping the starting role with Kahn Fotuali’i, while Phil Dowson comes into the back row for Tom Wood. Ken Pisi has been carrying a leg injury for a couple of weeks and is replaced at full back by Tom Collins. 

Collins’ place on the bench is taken by Fa’atoina Autagavaia, who will make his first team debut should he see action. The Samoan international arrived at Franklin’s Gardens before Christmas and played in the Wanderers’ win at Coventry on Friday, December 27th

There are a limited number of tickets left for tomorrow night’s game which can be booked online at www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/buytickets

Season Ticket Holders are politely reminded that there will be NO reprinted tickets available in lieu of forgotten Season Cards. Instead a new Season Card will be reissued and a £10 charge incurred.
