Derby day team news for Saints

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Saturday’s East Midlands derby.

The Aviva Premiership returns to Franklin’s Gardens with one of the biggest matches of the season, and the Saints line-up that will start against Leicester shows a handful of changes from that which began last weekend’s European Rugby Champions Cup win over Treviso.

Luther Burrell pairs with Tom Stephenson in the centres, the England man’s return to the 12 shirt seeing Stephenson move outside a position. Up front Alex Waller, Christian Day and Samu Manoa all start, swapping places with Ethan Waller, Sam Dickinson and Phil Dowson.

Saturday’s game is completely sold out; however supporters can follow the action as it happens at www.saintslive.co.uk
