Duo return to Saints starting lineup for Falcons trip

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Scrum-half Fotuali’i comes in for Lee Dickson, who is on England’s bench on Saturday, while second row Day has recovered from the leg injury which kept him out of last weekend’s win over Worcester.


England Under-20 centre Tom Stephenson continues his midfield partnership with George Pisi, while Day’s return means a move back to Number 8 for Sam Dickinson.


GJ Van Velze drops to the bench, where he is joined by Junior World Championship winning scrum-half Alex Day, fly half Glenn Dickson, and full back Ben Foden, who could see his first Aviva Premiership action since the Round 8 clash against the same opponents last November.


Sunday’s game is not live on TV, but supporters can follow the action wherever they are by tuning into BBC Radio Northampton or heading to www.saintslive.co.uk for live text commentary.


You can hear the thoughts of coach Alex King and Kahn Fotuali’i on Sunday’s match right now on the official Saints podcast, along with a variety of other behind-the-scenes interviews from Franklin’s Gardens. The podcast can be downloaded or streamed for FREE on any device by CLICKING HERE!
