Wood, who marked his 100th first team appearance last week with a try, also captains the team. Meanwhile Kahn Fotuali'i replaces Lee Dickson at scrum-half in a direct swap.

Saturday's game is being shown live on BT Sport, with coverage starting at 3:00pm. Live text commentary will also be available at www.saintslive.co.uk
