Saints team for Dragons clash

Friday, November 10, 2017

Northampton Saints have named their side for the second round of the Anglo-Welsh Cup, where they face Dragons at the Gardens on Saturday.

Returning home with it all still to play for in Pool 3, there are four changes to the starting XV from last weekend's opener.

Harry Mallinder comes into the side at fullback, while Jamal Ford-Robinson is on the tight head, Michael Paterson in the second row and Mitch Eadie at number eight.

Elsewhere, Sam Dickinson captains the side.

With no TV presence at Franklin's Gardens the only place to catch all the action is inside the stadium. Tickets are still available from £28 (adults) and £12 (juniors) HERE

The England versus Argentina game will be shown on the big screen in the Village and within the stadium bars from 3pm.

As always, Saints' traditional Remembrance service will take place before the game kicks-off, with supporters being urged to take their seats early.
