Northampton Saints team named to play Bath

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Saturday’s clash with Bath, the final Aviva Premiership match to be played at Franklin’s Gardens in 2015/16.

The Saints are welcoming back a number of players from the treatment rooms as they continue their chase for a top six Aviva Premiership finish and the European Rugby Champions Cup place that comes with it.

Lee Dickson is back at scrum-half to captain the side, with Ben Foden, George North and Jamie Gibson also returning to the starting line-up and Kahn Fotuali’i coming onto the bench.

There are still some tickets remaining for the game here and by using Print@Home supporters can beat the match day queues and save the admin fees.

Supporters heading to Franklin’s Gardens are reminded to allow additional time for their journeys to and from the game to take tomorrow’s fixture clash with Northampton Town FC into account. Full details about how best to plan your journey are available on the club’s website, and Season Ticket Holders can let the train take the strain with a special 50 percent discount on match day travel on London Midland’s network between Leighton Buzzard and Rugby.

Gibson previews the action in this week’s podcast, which also includes interviews with Paul Hill, Christian Day and attack coach Alex King. Stream for FREE on any device at www.soundcloud.com/official-saints-rugby or subscribe on iTunes.
