Northampton Saints make just two changes for their trip to Wasps this Sunday, with Alex Waller and Luther Burrell coming into the starting line-up.
The men in Black, Green and Gold travel to the Ricoh Arena off the back of a Derby Day success at Leicester Tigers a fortnight ago – their first triumph at Welford Road since 2007.
Saints will be hoping for their first-ever victory in Coventry this weekend, having last won on Wasps soil back in 2013.
Interim head coach Alan Dickens and technical coaching consultant Alan Gaffney welcome back Burrell and Waller into the starting XV for the first time since their respective injury layoffs – both lined up on the bench against Tigers.
But there’s also a return for Heinrich Brüssow; the South African flanker is fit enough for a spot on the bench after last playing against Bath Rugby back in March.
Burrell partners up with Piers Francis in the centres with Stephen Myler and Cobus Reinach continuing together in the half-backs.
Ben Foden will lead out the side as captain, and the Saints veteran is joined in the back three by George North and fullback Ahsee Tuala.
The back row remains unchanged with Jamie Gibson, Teimana Harrison, and Mitch Eadie all impressing in Leicester – but Alex Mitchell, James Grayson and Tom Collins will all look to inject some pace off the bench.
