Northampton Saints team news for Sale Sharks trip

James Craig

The Northampton Saints team has been announced for Friday night’s Aviva Premiership trip to Sale Sharks.

The Saints got back onto winning ways against Worcester last Saturday and there is just the one change to the starting line-up from that which ran out to face the Warriors, with James Craig replacing Christian Day in the second row.

With no live TV coverage from the AJ Bell Stadium the best way to follow the action as it happens is via the live text coverage available at www.saintslive.co.uk
