Amended Saints team news for LV= Cup opener

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

With a host of players away on international duty this week the Saints coaches have used the game as an opportunity to freshen up the team, including handing a first team debut to Joel Hodgson.


The former Falcon lines up at scrum-half as one of 14 changes to the starting line-up from that which began last weekend’s European Rugby Champions Cup win over the Ospreys.

JAMES CRAIG IS A LATE WITHDRAWAL DUE TO INJURY, SO ALEX WOOLFORD STARTS AND JORDAN ONOJAIFE COMES ONTO THE BENCH.

A very limited number of single seats remain available via www.tinyurl.com/SAI-OSP-1415 with further tickets being sold by Season Ticket Holders at www.stubhub.co.uk/northampton-saints-tickets

Supporters are reminded that tomorrow’s game kicks off at 4pm to avoid a direct clash with Northampton Town FC. The bars and Village open at 1pm, with the stadium opening at 2pm.


For supporters who cannot attend tomorrow’s match, which is not live on TV anywhere, minute-by-minute updates and the best social media interaction will be available at www.saintslive.co.uk


Supporters can hear the thoughts of Jim Mallinder, Jamie Elliott, Alan Dickens, Phil Dowson, Will Hooley and Tom Stephenson in this week’s podcast, which is available to stream or download for FREE on any device at www.soundcloud.com/official-saints-rugby
