Team News Saints name team for Twickenham final

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Saturday’s Aviva Premiership final against Saracens.

The Saints head to Twickenham with a starting line-up showing just the two changes from that which began last Friday’s successful Amlin Challenge Cup final.

Kahn Fotuali’i wears the number nine shirt, swapping places with Lee Dickson, with Salesi Ma’afu returning to the front row and Tom Mercey dropping to the bench. There is one other change to the match day squad from Cardiff, with Dylan Hartley named among the replacements.

Tom Wood leads the team, and you can hear the England flanker’s thoughts on the game in this week’s official Saints podcast, along with interviews with Jim Mallinder, Samu Manoa, George North and Alex Corbisiero.

Saturday’s game is being shown on the big screens in the Rodber Suite at Franklin’s Gardens, with doors opening at 2pm.

If supporters prefer to stay at home they can watch the game live on BT Sport, listen to BBC Radio Northampton or follow the action at www.saintslive.co.uk
