Unchanged Saints on the road again to Welsh

The Saints have named an unchanged starting XV for the Aviva Premiership Round 9 trip to London Welsh this Sunday afternoon.

A clean bill of health means the coaches can call on the same side that produced an outstanding first half in last weekend's rain-soaked win over Saracens, one which saw the Saints maintain their place at the top of the table.

There are, however, alterations to the matchday 23 with a trio of returnees among the replacements. Kahn Fotuali'i and Ken Pisi are back following their autumn series with Samoa, while Sam Dickinson is in line for his first appearance since the 2014 Aviva Premiership Final having rehabbed from a neck injury.

There is no television coverage at Kassam Stadium, though supporters wishing to follow the action as it happens can still do so at www.saintslive.co.uk
