Team news for Ulster trip

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Thirty players are making the trip over the Irish Sea for the final pre-season match of the summer against Ulster.

The Saints are heading to Belfast to play the Pro 12 semi-finalists on Friday evening (KO 7:30pm) with a starting lineup that contains a mix of the two teams which played at Franklin’s Gardens last weekend.

With no live TV coverage from the Kingspan Stadium - highlights will be on SaintsTV later in the weekend - supporters can stay up-to-date through the Saints’ official Twitter (www.twitter.com/SaintsRugby) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/OfficialNorthamptonSaints) accounts.

The club has also confirmed that Tom Stephenson sustained a broken tibia and fibula in last Saturday’s win over Rotherham, and after a successful operation has begun his rehabilitation work with the Saints’ medical team.

Meanwhile Christian Day will miss the start of the Aviva Premiership campaign after an operation on a ruptured bicep.

There is good news regarding Calum Clark, however, who is now training fully with the club’s squad.
