Team News Two changes for Saints as they head over the Severn

The Northampton Saints team which heads into Wales this weekend for the resumption of the Heineken Cup shows two changes from that which started against Harlequins.

Kahn Fotuali’i comes in for Lee Dickson at scrum-half on his return to his old stomping ground, with Tom Wood wearing the number seven shirt in place of Phil Dowson. Both Dickson and Dowson have been named on the replacements’ bench.

It is four years since the Saints last played at the Liberty Stadium, an LV= Cup clash on Bonfire Night, 2009. And while Jim Mallinder’s men have taken on the Ospreys in the Anglo-Welsh Cup since then this is the first time that the Saints have played in Swansea in the Heineken Cup.

Sunday’s game is being shown live on Sky Sports 2, with coverage starting at 12noon. Live text commentary will also be available on www.saintslive.co.uk
