Saints team news for 2015 opener

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

There is just one change to the starting line-up from that which began last Saturday’s win at Twickenham, with Phil Dowson swapping places with Tom Wood in the back row. Dowson also captains the team.

Meanwhile hooker Matti Williams and scrum-half Joel Hodgson come onto the bench.

Friday’s game kicks off at 7:45pm, with car parking available on Edgar Mobbs Way from 5pm. Food and drink outlets open in the Village at 5pm, with the main stadium opening at 6pm.

A very limited number of tickets remain available for the game; head to www.tinyurl.com/SAI-NEW-1415 for full information and to book online, using [email protected] to beat the match day queues and save the admin fees.
