Saints' Academy coaches have named their squad to face Leicester Tigers at Loughborough University in the Premiership Rugby U18 Academies League opener this afternoon.

Making their first outing of the season off the back of an unbeaten pre-season campaign, Saints' youngsters get their campaign started with a derby trip to face Leicester Tigers.

Captained by Joe Wallace, the side take to the field with familiar faces from last season's campaign in Conor Tupai, Ollie Sleightholme, Fin Creighton and Samson Ma'asi as well as a host of younger faces, including under-16 players Kayde Sylvester and Emmanuel Iyogun.

Saints' U18s face local rivals Leicester at Loughborough University from 4pm. Entry to the University campus can be accessed via main East Park entrance which is off Epinal Way. Once you are through the main security barrier, the pitch, parking and changing rooms are off the road immediately on your left. Entry and parking is completely free for supporters.
