Northampton Saints team news for Exeter Chiefs clash

Northampton Saints team news for Exeter Chiefs clash

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Friday night’s Aviva Premiership Round 5 home game against Exeter Chiefs.

Calum Clark is in line for his first Aviva Premiership action since the 2015 semi-final against Saracens, the flanker having missed the whole of last season. But after impressing in his two run-outs in the Aviva ‘A’ League Clark has been brought into the back row that will face the visitors from the south west.

Tickets remain available for Friday night’s game at www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/buytickets, where by using Print@Home supporters can save themselves the admin fees and beat the match day queues.

Alex Waller looks ahead to the clash in this week’s The Saints TV Show, which also features the first chats with new signings Api Ratuniyarawa and Nafi Tuitavake and a look back at last Saturday’s Under-11 Land Rover Premiership Rugby Cup. Watch for free at www.youtube.com/TheSaintsTV.

Forwards coach Dorian West’s views can be heard in this week’s club podcast, along with an extended conversation with Ben Foden. Listen for free on any device at www.soundcloud.com/official-saints-rugby or search for Northampton Saints on iTunes.
