Team News Saints name team for semi-final clash with Saracens

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Saturday’s LV= Cup semi-final against Saracens.

The Aviva Premiership’s top two teams go head-to-head at Franklin’s Gardens in the hunt for a place in the first final of the season, and even though there is a great deal riding on the game the Saints coaches have used it as an opportunity to rotate the squad.

There are returns to the starting line-up for wing Tom Collins and second row James Craig, with full back Ben Foden, fly half Will Hooley, prop Tom Mercey and flanker Ben Nutley all stepping up from the bench.

Tickets remain available for the game, with the Saints Ticket Office open until 5pm on Friday and from 9am on Saturday morning. Alternatively book online throughout the day by CLICKING HERE and following the straightforward instructions!

Season Ticket Holders are reminded that Saturday’s game is NOT included in their 2013/14 package.

You can hear the thoughts of forward coach Dorian West and Christian Day right now on the Saints’ official podcast, along with chats with Jamie Elliott and Tom Stephenson. Just CLICK HERE to stream or download for free on any device.
