Samu Manoa will miss Saints’ Aviva Premiership showdown with Leicester Tigers on March 29 due to international commitments.

The reigning player of the season will also miss Saturday’s clash with Sale Sharks as he represents USA in the two-legged IRB World Cup 2015 qualifier against Uruguay.

Cam Dolan has also joined up with the national squad, who face a first leg in Montevideo this weekend before returning to Georgia for the second game a week later.

Other Premiership clubs have also lost men to the tie, with Leicester’s Blaine Scully also in the squad, along with Saracens trio Chris Wyles, Hayden Smith and Titi Lamositele.
