Northamptons Saints team named for Champions Cup quarter final

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Saturday’s trip to Saracens in the last eight of the European Rugby Champions Cup.

Ben Foden captains the side in Barnet for the all-Aviva Premiership tie, while there are a quintet of changes to the starting XV that faced Wasps last Sunday.

In the backline, Luther Burrell and Jamie Elliott start, while Paul Hill comes onto the tight-head as one of three changes in the pack.

James Craig’s introduction to the second row sees Courtney Lawes move to the blindside flank, while Ben Nutley wears seven having skippered the Wanderers to the A League semi-finals with two tries this past Monday evening.
