Saints name team for crunch Castres clash

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Friday night’s clash against the French champions is crucial for the Saints’ European ambitions. Nothing less than a win will do as Jim Mallinder’s men look to put pressure on Leinster at the top of Pool 1, and even though qualification for the Amlin Challenge Cup quarter finals is still in their hands four league points will be important to book another European date in April.


The Saints coaches have made two changes to the starting line-up which began last Sunday’s win over the Ospreys. Lee Dickson comes in at scrum-half with Fa’atoina Autagavaia, who came on in the wins over Harlequins and the Ospreys, making his first start at full back.


Kahn Fotuali’i drops to the bench, with Gareth Denman and Ken Pisi returning to the match day squad.


With so much riding on tomorrow night’s game every ounce of support from the stands will count. Tickets are still available by CLICKING HERE and following the straightforward instructions. [email protected] to beat the queues and save themselves the admin fees!
