Saints team for Anglo-Welsh Cup opener

Friday, November 3, 2017

The Northampton Saints side has been named for Saturday afternoon’s trip to Exeter in the Anglo-Welsh Cup, the starting XV dominated by those who have impressed for the unbeaten Wanderers in 2017/18.

Full back George Furbank becomes the latest to step up from the A-League for a Saints debut, while on the bench Tom Emery is also in line for a first senior appearance. The duo are among 11 Academy produced talents in the match day squad.

Elsewhere Sam Dickinson skippers the side and Mitch Eadie returns from an ankle injury sustained on the opening weekend of the season to feature in the 23.
