Rugby News Two games, two Saints teams at the Gardens this Saturday

Nearly 50 players have been included in the two Northampton Saints squads for this Saturday’s double-header of pre-season friendlies.

The Saints take on Pro 12 champions Leinster at 2:30pm, followed by a clash with Championship outfit Moseley at 5pm.

Forty-six players have been named by director of rugby Jim Mallinder in the two squads, with some players to see action in both matches.

Internationals including Dylan Hartley, George North, Kahn Fotuali’i and Samu Manoa have been named in a squad for the first time this summer.

And with several members of the club’s Senior Academy away with England Under-18 in South Africa, and the Saints’ own Under-18s on tour in Dublin, the opportunity has been given to a number of local up-and-coming young players to be a part of a match day squad.

Both games are included in the one match ticket, with entry costing £15 for adults and £7.50 for juniors throughout the stadium.
