Saints team named for Saracens challenge

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Sunday’s Aviva Premiership tie with Saracens at Stadium MK.

A pair of changes in the backs see Ken Pisi and Luther Burrell start, while their places on the bench are filled by Rory Hutchinson and Juan Pablo Estelles.

Sunday is also Charities Day for the Saints, with 15 worthy causes having their logo displayed on a selected player’s sleeve (listed below) and all having a presence inside the stadium to collect and raise awareness.

Tickets are still available for what promises to be another big day in Milton Keynes, the Stadium MK Box Office open from 9am on Sunday morning.
