Northampton Saints team news for Falcons trip

SaintsTryCelebrate

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Sunday’s Aviva Premiership Round 13 trip to Newcastle.

An unchanged 23 has been chosen from that which earned a bonus point win against London Irish last time out.

With Newcastle in the middle of a good run of home form forwards coach Dorian West is aware of the challenges that the Falcons will pose, and he previews the game in this week’s official podcast. There is also an extended interview with Stephen Myler, who reflects on over nine years and 274 appearances in black, green and gold, as well as chats with James Wilson and hooker Reece Marshall.
