Team News Saints change five for Saracens clash

There are five changes to the Northampton Saints side which takes on Saracens in the final round of LV= Cup pool matches tomorrow afternoon.

Although both clubs have qualified for the semi-finals there is the all-important matter of a home tie to be decided, with the winner of tomorrow’s game all-but-certain of playing in their own stadium in March’s knockout stages.

With 13 players away on international duty, and more on the treatment table, the Saints have recalled Jamie Elliott, George Pisi, Samu Manoa and Ben Nutley into the starting lineup, with Will Hooley making his first team debut at fly half. The former England Under-20 Junior World Championship winner has been on dual registration with Moseley this season, for whom he has made 11 appearances in the current campaign.

There are a very limited number of tickets remaining for tomorrow’s big game, which can be booked now by CLICKING HERE and following the straightforward instructions, whether you're on a computer, tablet or smartphone. Print@Home to save the admin fees and beat the queues on match day!

The game is not being broadcast anywhere on TV, but supporters who aren’t at Franklin’s Gardens can follow the action as it happens wherever they are with the text commentary at www.saintslive.co.uk or by listening to BBC Radio Northampton.
