Team News Saints rotate for final round

The Northampton Saints coaches have used Saturday’s final Aviva Premiership regular season match against London Wasps as an opportunity to give game time to several players in the squad.

George North, Christian Day and Lee Dickson all come into the starting line-up having recovered from their various knocks. Meanwhile George Pisi, Kahn Fotuali’i, Samu Manoa and Tom Wood all drop to the replacements’ bench, replaced by James Wilson, Dickson, James Craig and Phil Dowson respectively.

Elsewhere in the team Mike Haywood comes in for Ross McMillan at hooker, who has picked up a shoulder knock and misses out. McMillan’s absence from the squad means that loanee hooker Koree Britton could make an appearance from the bench, where he is named alongside Alex Corbisiero.

A limited number of tickets remain for Saturday’s game, with bookings able to be made online by CLICKING HERE and following the straightforward instructions, or in person at the Saints Ticket Office, which is open until 5pm on Friday and from 9am on Saturday.

Saturday’s action at Franklin’s Gardens does not end with the Saints, as England Deaf are playing Wales Deaf at 6pm.

England Deaf team manager Tony Stoyles discusses this match in this week’s Saints podcast, with Alan Dickens, George Pisi and Sam Dickinson looking ahead to the Aviva Premiership clash with London Wasps. There is also a feature on this week’s Charity Chicken Nandos takeover, which raised money for Cynthia Spencer Hospice. Download the podcast for FREE onto any device by CLICKING HERE
