Saints team named for Wasps away

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Sunday’s Midlands derby at the Ricoh Arena.

Following the five-point win over Harlequins, four changes have been made as fourth placed Saints visit a Wasps side one spot higher in the Aviva Premiership.

In the centres, bonus try scorer Harry Mallinder wears 12, while Kahn Fotuali’i also comes into the backline at scrum-half.

Second row Christian Day takes his place in the engine room and Sam Dickinson’s introduction at 8 sees Teimana Harrison and skipper for the day Tom Wood shuffle around the back row.

Kick off in Coventry is 3pm and as well as watching live on BT Sport 1, you can also follow the action blow-by-blow at www.saintslive.co.uk or with @SaintsRugby on Twitter.
