Team News Saints name team for Easter Sunday clash with Exiles

Northampton Saints host London Irish on Sunday in the 20th round of the 2014/14 Aviva Premiership campaign, with the starting team showing three personnel changes from that which earned a dramatic late bonus point at Saracens last weekend.

Kahn Fotuali’i comes in at scrum-half with the other two changes coming in the pack, with Phil Dowson and Sam Dickinson both starting alongside Tom Wood in the back row.

Meanwhile Calum Clark, who was named as the Steffans Player of the Month for March earlier this week, could make his one hundredth first team appearance in just his fourth season at Franklin’s Gardens after being named on the replacements’ bench.

There are a limited number of tickets remaining for Sunday’s game, and although the Saints Ticket Office is closed on Good Friday orders can still be placed online by CLICKING HERE and following the straightforward instructions.

And you can hear the thoughts of director of rugby Jim Mallinder, Alex Waller, Courtney Lawes and Jamie Elliott in this week’s official Saints podcast, available to stream or download for free onto any device by CLICKING HERE
