Saints change three for Aviva Premiership return

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

The Saints take on London Wasps in the first of three tough festive Aviva Premiership matches that will test their top four credentials to the full.


Director of rugby Jim Mallinder and the coaches have made three straight swaps between the bench and the starting 15, with Kahn Fotuali’i, Mike Haywood and Sam Dickinson coming in for Lee Dickson, Dylan Hartley and Courtney Lawes respectively.


Dickinson’s introduction sees Samu Manoa move up to the second row, and with Hartley on the bench it falls to Tom Wood to captain the side.


Tomorrow’s game is not being shown live on TV, so the best way to keep up-to-dates are with the live text commentary available on any device at www.saintslive.co.uk


And you can hear the thoughts of Alan Dickens, George North, Tom Mercey and others right now on the Saints’ podcast, available to stream or download on all devices for FREE at www.soundcloud.com/official-saints-rugby
