Saints team news for stadiummk Saracens clash

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Saturday’s top-of-the-table Aviva Premiership clash with Saracens.

The Saints will host Saracens at stadiummk in front of what is anticipated to be a new attendance record crowd for the Rugby World Cup venue, breaking the 27,000 mark that watched MK Dons beat Manchester United last August.

There are a handful of changes to the Saints’ starting line-up, with Salesi Ma’afu and Courtney Lawes returning to the pack and Ahsee Tuala coming in at full back.

Saturday could also be a momentous occasion for scrum-half Lee Dickson, who will become a double Saints centurion should he see action off the bench.

With such a large crowd heading to Milton Keynes, all supporters are strongly advised to allow plenty of time for their journeys to stadiummk. If you do not have a car parking pass then you will not be allowed to park on-site, but there is a free shuttle bus service running between Central Milton Keynes and stadiummk, starting at 12:15pm.

There is a full preview of Saturday’s game in this week’s official Saints podcast, which includes interviews with Christian Day, Tom Wood and defence coach Alan Dickens. We also hear from GR Railfreight managing director John Smith and director of rugby Jim Mallinder at this week’s naming of ‘Northampton Saints’, the latest addition to the GB Railfreight fleet.
