The two Saints teams have been named for Saturday’s pre-season double-header with the Cornish Pirates and Rotherham Titans.

The Saints take on the Pirates at 1:30pm, with the subsequent match with Rotherham kicking off at 4:00pm.

The games will give supporters an early opportunity to see new signings in action, including Louis Picamoles, Juan Pable Estelles and Charlie Clare, who all start against Rotherham, with Matt Beesley and Nic Groom included among a group of replacements across the two games.

The Saints coaches have also included three members of the Saints Under-18s team among the replacements, fresh from their successful week in Dublin.

Both of Saturday’s games are included in the 2016/17 Season Ticket package, with match day tickets available in advance from www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/buytickets
