Trio of changes for Bristol-bound Saints

Trio of changes for Bristol-bound Saints

The Saints side headed for Ashton Gate on Sunday afternoon shows three changes to the one that kicked off the Aviva Premiership season last weekend.

Ahsee Tuala moves from wing to full back with George North the first new face in the backline, while at fly half Stephen Myler starts.

The tight-five is unchanged, but in the back row Teimana Harrison moves up from the bench onto the open side. Among the replacements, Mikey Haywood returns to the match day 23.

The game, which kicks off at 3pm, is not televised but live text commentary will be available at www.saintslive.co.uk.
