Saints ring changes for LV= Cup Leicester trip

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

With both teams leading their respective pools this is set to be another important East Midlands derby, and the team that Phil Dowson leads out at Welford Road will be playing in front of a record crowd for the LV= Cup group stages.

But plenty of the players named have experienced big occasions, including internationals Cam Dolan and Tom Ryder, who make their Saints debuts.

Every other starting player has run out for the first team this season, and with 17 of the match day 23 having come through the club’s Academy system the squad reflects the LV= Cup’s ethos of giving opportunities to young players to shine.

Tomorrow’s game is sold out, and with no TV coverage supporters can turn to www.saintslive.co.uk for live text commentary and the best social media interaction.

Ethan Waller, Matti Williams, Jamie Elliott and defence coach Alan Dickens preview the game in this week’s Saints podcast, which also includes Lee Dickson chatting to the RFU podcast about leading England Saxons and why Saints With Heart is looking to go bigger and better in 2015.
