Saints team named for derby day

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Two changes have been made to the team which heads up the M1 to Leicester, with Tom Wood and Samu Manoa both returning to the pack.


Otherwise the Saints coaches have retained the starting line-up that beat Sale Sharks in Round 4 last Friday night.


It is also a big day for Stephen Myler and Lee Dickson, who will become Aviva Premiership’s record holders for the most starts as a half-back partnership. Saturday’s game will be the 59th occasion the two will have started as a pair in the black, green and gold, one ahead of Martyn Wood and current Saints coach Alex King.


The clash at a sold-out Welford Road is being shown exclusively live on BT Sport 1, with coverage starting at 3pm.
