Saints unchanged for key Kingsholm clash

Northampton Saints have name an unchanged starting line-up for Saturday’s Aviva Premiership trip to Gloucester.

The men in black, green and gold overturned a 14-point half-time deficit to see off Bath last weekend and the same 15 will take to the field for the final round of league action in 2015/16.

Lee Dickson leads the side out having earlier this week stressed the importance of victory to the Saints’ Champions Cup qualification hopes. You can hear more from the scrum-half, as well as Alan Dickens and George North, in this week’s Northampton Saints podcast.

The only two changes to the match day squad come among the replacements, where Dylan Hartley and Sam Olver are included.

All six Round 22 matches will kick off at 3:30pm, with BT Sport 2 set to broadcast live coverage from Kingsholm.
