Northampton Saints team news versus Worcester

Foden

Ben Foden will become the 55th player to reach 200 Northampton Saints first team appearances when he runs out at Sixways in Friday night’s Aviva Premiership clash with Worcester.

The full back returns to the starting line-up after coming off the bench in last Saturday’s Anglo-Welsh Cup win over Gloucester as one of nine changes to the team.

With no live TV coverage of the game the best way for supporters to stay in touch with the action is with the minute-by-minute text commentary at www.saintslive.co.uk.

Luther Burrell previews the action in this week’s The Saints TV Show, which also features reviews of the Under-9s’ tournament at Franklin’s Gardens and a feature on the Saints’ rugby development project in Corby. Watch for FREE at www.youtube.com/thesaintstv

Meanwhile there are extended interviews with Jamie Gibson and Dorian West in this week’s official Saints podcast. Listen for FREE at www.soundcloud.com/official-saints-rugby or by searching for ‘Northampton Saints’ on iTunes.
