Two changes for Under-18s ahead of Yorkshire clash

Northampton Saints Under-18s make just two changes to their starting XV for the second match of the Premiership Rugby U18 Academy League season.

The boys in Black, Green and Gold started the campaign on fire last week against local rivals Leicester Tigers, running in 11 tries to win 75-7 on Pitch 2 at cinch Stadium at Franklin’s Gardens.

Will Parkin’s side are back on home soil this afternoon, facing Yorkshire Academy who kicked-off their campaign last week with a narrow 33-31 defeat to Midlands Central.

Saints make just two changes following last Friday’s strong showing, with Louis Burns coming onto the wing and Harry Price starting at openside flanker.

Billy Pasco captains the side from inside centre, with Rafe Witheat (wing) and Johnathan Weimann (scrum-half) – who grabbed three and two tries respectively against Leicester – also continuing for Northampton.
