Saints change four to face Cherry and Whites

Four changes have been made to the Northampton Saints starting line-up for tomorrow’s Aviva Premiership trip to Gloucester.

The Saints head to Kingsholm with three changes in the pack and another at half-back.

Alex Corbisiero and Salesi Ma'afu come in for Alex Waller and Gareth Denman respectively, with Tom Wood swapping places with Sam Dickinson in the back row. 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
