Saints team named for Saracens trip

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

In the backs Tom Collins is ruled out, with James Wilson coming onto the wing. But in the pack the Saints have been bolstered by James Craig’s return, with the lock’s introduction meaning that Samu Manoa switches to number eight. Phil Dowson moves to the flank, with Ben Nutley dropping to the bench.


Sunday’s game kicks off at 1pm, and travelling Saints supporters are advised that with NO public car parking available in Barnet and heavily policed restrictions on residential streets they should be prepared to use public transport for at least part of their journey.


Details are available on the Saracens website, along with ticket availability.


Live coverage is also available on BT Sport and BBC Radio Northampton, with www.saintslive.co.uk the perfect alternative if you are out and about and following the action on your smartphone or tablet.


Alex King and Jamie Elliott preview Sunday’s game in this week’s podcast, which also includes Alex Waller chatting about his experiences in England’s training camp this Autumn and Phil Dowson discussing balancing his rugby and business careers. The podcast can be downloaded or streamed for FREE on any device at www.soundcloud.com/official-saints-rugby
