Northampton Saints team named to play Leicester Tigers

The Northampton Saints team has been announced for Saturday’s Aviva Premiership East Midlands derby against Leicester.

The starting line-up sees four changes from that which began the European Rugby Champions Cup quarter final at Saracens, with Ahsee Tuala, Tom Kessell, Kieran Brookes and Tom Wood coming into the team, with Wood also wearing the captain’s armband.

There are no tickets left in the Saints Ticket Office for tomorrow’s game, although there are a few still remaining through StubHub, the club’s official ticket marketplace, at www.stubhub.co.uk/saints.

A match preview can be heard now in this week’s official Saints podcast, which includes chats with Stephen Myler, Dorian West and Harry Mallinder, while Dusty Hare reflects on his derby experiences while playing for Leicester.
