Saints blend youth and experience for final LV= Cup pool round

Saints blend youth and experience for final LV= Cup pool round

The Northampton Saints team named for tomorrow’s LV= Cup Round 4 pool game against Wasps shows a blend of youth and experience.

The likes of centre Tom Stephenson, fly half Sam Olver, hooker Matti Williams and flanker Teimana Harrison fall into the former category, with scrum-half Kahn Fotuali'i, prop Alex Corbisiero and captain Phil Dowson providing the experience.

Once again there is a healthy contingent of players in the match day squad who have come through the Saints Academy system – 11 in all – and another debutant, Samoan full back Ahsee Tuala.

Franklin's Gardens is on the verge of being a sell-out for an 11th successive game this season, with a smattering of tickets remaining available at www.tinyurl.com/SAI-WAS-LV1415. Tickets are also available from Season Ticket Holders at www.stubhub.co.uk

Dom Waldouck, Alex Woolford, Teimana Harrison and attack coach Alex King preview Saturday's game in this week's podcast, available for FREE on any device at www.soundcloud.com/official-saints-rugby
