Team news for Gloucester clash

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

It’s a return back to the Aviva Premiership for Northampton Saints on Friday night, and the team has been named for the Round 5 home match against Gloucester (KO 7:45pm).

Both teams go into the game on the back of two successful weeks in Europe, and the Saints have made just the one change to the starting line-up from that which began last weekend’s win at Glasgow.

Kahn Fotuali’i swaps places with Lee Dickson at scrum-half, with Tom Wood leading the team out. There could also be a club debut for Victor Matfield, who has been named on the bench, while Ken Pisi has also returned to the match day 23.

Alex King and Jamie Gibson preview tomorrow’s game in this week’s official Saints podcast, which also includes an extended interview with Luther Burrell and a look at Aviva Tackling Numbers, just one of the many programmes delivered by the Saints’ community team.
