McMillan to skipper Saints in Mobbs Memorial Match
Saints have named several first-team squad members in their team to face the British Army in Wednesday night’s Mobbs Memorial Match at Franklin’s Gardens.
Tom Collins, Fa’atoina Autagavaia, James Craig and Teimana Harrison are among the starting 15 for the game, which commemorates Edgar Mobbs, the former Saints and England wing who was killed during the First World War.

Entry to tonight’s game, which kicks off at 7.45pm, is free, but everyone who attends is encouraged to donate towards the Mobbs Memorial Trust, which receives all proceeds from the game.
Saints: Diggin; Collins, Hutchinson, Mallinder, Autagavaia; Olver, A Day; Hobbs-Awoyemi, McMillan, Parkins; Craig, Verbakel; Williams, Conner, Harrison.
