Sale-bound Saints switch four

The Northampton Saints coaches have made a quartet of changes to their starting XV as they head for Sale in Round 13 of the Aviva Premiership.

Tom Wood is back to captain the team from the blindside, while Ben Nutley also comes in as the pack is shuffled – Calum Clark moving up to the second row and Phil Dowson wearing No.8.

Alex Corbisiero makes his first start since September on the loose head with the final change coming in the backs, where Jamie Elliott is on the right wing.

There is no television coverage from the AJ Bell Stadium tomorrow afternoon, but you can still follow the action as it happens at www.saintslive.co.uk. Score updates will also be available on the @SaintsRugby Twitter feed.
