England call for Saints octet

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Waller, who burrowed over at the death of extra-time to hand the Saints a first ever English crown, will be looking to make the step up from Saxons level and is joined by man of the match from Saturday's epic 24-20 win over Saracens, Stephen Myler.

The fly half will be hoping to add to a cap he won on last summer's England tour.

A further six Saints have also been retained from the Six Nations squad, trophy lifting skippers Dylan Hartley and Tom Wood among them as well as Luther Burrell, Lee Dickson, Ben Foden and Courtney Lawes.

Players who took part in the Aviva Premiership final will not be available for this Saturday morning's opener at Eden Park, but will be in contention when the tour moves to Dunedin a week later for Test two of a three match series.
