LDickson-Saints-0801

The Saints team has been announced for the first East Midlands derby of 2016 – Saturday’s Aviva Premiership trip to Welford Road.

A pair of changes to the team that beat Exeter both come in the backs, where Jamie Elliott starts on the right wing and Lee Dickson captains the side from scrum-half. Two Toms, Wood and Kessell, come into the match day 23 among the replacements.

The game, which kicks off at 3:15pm, is being shown live on BT Sport, while supporters can also follow the action at www.saintslive.co.uk. Previews with Alex King and members of the Saints team are available through Soundcloud and YouTube.
