Northampton Saints team named to play Harlequins

SaintsNorth

The Northampton Saints team has been named for the Easter Sunday home game against Harlequins.

There are five changes to the starting line-up for the Aviva Premiership Round 18 clash with Quins, who like the Saints are well in the hunt for a place in the play-off positions.

Luther Burrell, George North and Stephen Myler come into the back line, with Kieran Brookes and Tom Wood returning to the pack. There is also a possible senior debut for Campese Ma’afu, who has been included in a match day 23 for the first time since arriving at Franklin’s Gardens earlier in the year.

A limited number of tickets remain available for the game, which kicks off at 3:15pm on Sunday. Supporters can order online at www.tinyurl.com/SAI-QUI-1516 and by using Print@Home they can save the admin fees and beat the match day queues.

Attack coach Alex King previews the game in this week’s podcast, which also includes Dylan Hartley reflecting on the Grand Slam, Paul Hill discussing his first experiences of senior international rugby, and English Institute of Sport nutritionist Emma Gardner, who talks about her work both with the Saints and GB Hockey.
