Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Friday night’s clash with Leinster – the club’s 100th in the top tier of European Rugby.

Tom Wood returns to lead the side out at Franklin’s Gardens, with a further trio of changes made to the XV that played Leicester.

In the backs, Ken Pisi and Nic Groom both start, while Courtney Lawes joins skipper Wood in the pack.

George North has not been considered for selection due to ongoing assessment.

Tickets are still available for the game, from just £30, with the Gardens set to welcome its biggest crowd of the season so far. Supporters can book online by CLICKING HERE
