Team News Saints team named for Sale trip

The Northampton Saints team has been named for the Aviva Premiership Round 17 trip to Sale Sharks.

Seven changes have been made to the team which began last Sunday’s LV= Cup final, with all the club’s half-dozen returning Six Nations internationals all coming into the starting 15 along with Stephen Myler, who was a late withdrawal in Exeter.

Luther Burrell returns at inside centre, where he partners James Wilson, and with George North coming onto the left wing Jamie Elliott switches to the right flank. Samu Manoa’s absence on international duty with the USA in Uruguay means that Courtney Lawes partners Christian Day in the second row, with GJ Van Velze continuing at number eight.

Saturday’s game in Salford is not being televised anywhere live, but supporters can still follow the action as it happens wherever they are in the world with the live text commentary at www.saintslive.co.uk
