Saints side for Sandy Park Sunday

Saints side for Sandy Park Sunday

The Northampton Saints team bound for Exeter shows a quartet of changes to the one that claimed a bonus point win over Sale last weekend.

Having made a return to first team action from the bench, Ahsee Tuala comes into the starting XV on the left wing. At fly half, try scorer JJ Hanrahan is also in from the off for the Aviva Premiership bout.

The Wallers swap on the loose head, elder brother Alex replacing Ethan, while a final change sees Jon Fisher wear eight in a back row shuffle.

This week’s FREE podcast includes a chat with Hanrahan about rugby and racing, while head of strength and conditioning Marc Finney gives his spring update on squad freshness. Dorian West and Mikey Haywood also preview Sunday’s game – listen below or CLICK HERE to download. You can also search and subscribe to ‘Northampton Saints’ on iTunes podcasts.

The game kicks off at 1pm on Sunday afternoon and is being shown live on BT Sport.
