The Northampton Saints team has been named for Sunday’s Aviva Premiership tie with Saracens at Stadium MK.
A pair of changes in the backs see Ken Pisi and Luther Burrell start, while their places on the bench are filled by Rory Hutchinson and Juan Pablo Estelles.
Sunday at Stadium MK is also Charities Day with the Saints, with 15 worthy causes having their logo displayed on a selected player’s sleeve (listed below) and all having a presence inside the stadium to collect and raise awareness.
Tickets are still available for what promises to be another big day in Milton Keynes. Supporters can purchase online at www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/buytickets until 12noon on Saturday, in person at the Saints Superstore until 5pm on Saturday, or at the Stadium MK Box Office, open from 9am on match day.
