Saints team named for final friendly with Ulster

Thursday, August 24, 2017

The Northampton Saints team has been announced for Friday night's game with Ulster - the final outing of pre-season at Franklin's Gardens.

Having made his first appearance of the season in last weekend's win over Glasgow, Dylan Hartley will lead the team out, while Courtney Lawes is in line for some game time from the bench, fresh from his Lions summer. 

Piers Francis misses Friday's game due to an injury sustained to his jaw in Stirling last weekend, and will almost certainly miss the start of the Aviva Premiership season. Meanwhile Stephen Myler is progressing well and is expected to be in action in the next few weeks.

The game, which kicks off at 7:30pm is included in the 2017/18 Season Ticket package, while general admission is just £15 adults or £5 juniors. Tickets can be booked online HERE or from the Saints Ticket Office, open until 5pm on Thursday or from 9am on Friday.
