Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Dylan Hartley leads England out on home soil for the first time since being named captain as they welcome Ireland to HQ on Saturday afternoon.

The Saints hooker has won both Tests since being named skipper by Eddie Jones and heads a squad also including club mates Paul Hill and Courtney Lawes.

Changes to the starting XV see Maro Itoje earn his maiden start in the second row, while Joe Marler is in at loose head.

The game, which kicks off at 4:50pm, is being shown live in bars around Franklin’s Gardens following the Aviva Premiership fixture with Worcester. Don’t miss the start of a huge game – book tickets for the Saints’ 2:45pm start and then stick around for an afternoon of double rugby!!
