Saints team named for Bath trip

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

The Saints coaches have made five changes to the starting line-up from that which began the Amlin Challenge Cup final win over Harlequins last weekend.


Ben Foden, Ken Pisi and Luther Burrell all come into the back line, with Courtney Lawes and Tom Wood stepping up from the bench. Wood wears the captain’s armband for the trip to the Recreation Ground.


Friday night’s game kicks off at 7:45pm, with live coverage on BT Sport 1, BBC Radio Northampton and www.saintslive.co.uk


There is a full preview of the clash in this week’s Saints podcast, which features interviews with forwards coach Dorian West, Samu Manoa, Luther Burrell and Gareth Denman. There is also a chat with Sam Olver, who is heading to New Zealand this summer as part of England Under-20s’ Junior World Championship squad.
