Northampton Saints team news versus Newcastle

Calum Clark

The Northampton Saints team has been announced for Sunday’s Aviva Premiership Round 15 trip to Newcastle.

The starting 15 shows two changes from that which came within a couple of minutes of a memorable comeback win at Bath last Friday night. Both come in the pack, where Api Ratuniyarawa and Calum Clark join the second row and back row respectively. Ben Nutley and Juan Pablo Estelles come onto the replacements’ bench.

With no live TV coverage from Kingston Park the best way to stay up-to-speed with the action as it happens is with the minute-by-minute text commentary available at www.saintslive.co.uk
