Saints team news to face Wasps

The Northampton Saints team has been named for Friday night’s Aviva Premiership return to Franklin’s Gardens.

The end of the Six Nations sees the return of several of the club’s internationals, who will line up in a starting 15 that shows a number of changes to that which ran out against Saracens a fortnight ago.

Given that it is the first game at Franklin’s Gardens for a month it is no surprise that the stadium is on the verge of its 14th successive capacity crowd of 2014/15, with just a handful of tickets remaining.
