Three changes for Saints at stadiummk

The Northampton Saints coaches have made three changes to the starting lineup for Saturday’s Aviva Premiership Round 2 clash with Newcastle.

The Saints are heading to stadiummk in Milton Keynes to host the Falcons while Franklin's Gardens continues its transformation with the development of the new Barwell Stand.

Tom Wood, Courtney Lawes and George Pisi all come into the side that will run out just before 1:45pm, with Michael Paterson and Jon Fisher dropping to the bench.

Samoan international Ahsee Tuala joins the match day 23 for the first time this season.
