Saints change one for visit of Irish

Saints change one for visit of Irish

James Wilson comes in to the starting line-up for Northampton Saints on Saturday afternoon as they welcome London Irish to Franklin’s Gardens.

The Kiwi makes his first start of the 2015/16 season on the left wing, George Pisi taking his place among the replacements for the Aviva Premiership tie as the only other change to the match day 23 that won dramtically at Harlequins last time out.

The game, which kicks off at 3pm, also marks the official opening of the Barwell Stand. The afternoon includes a parade of legends, the unveiling of a special mural created by local primary schools and a commemorative programme on the Barwells, all ahead of the ribbon cutting shortly before kick off.

Tickets are still available for the historic day, and can be booked online at www.northamptonsaints.co.uk/buytickets.
