Saints have recalled four key men for Saturday’s Aviva Premiership trip to Gloucester (kick-off 3.15pm).
Alex Corbisiero, Tom Wood and Samoan star Kahn Fotuali’i are back in the starting 15 after playing key roles from the bench in last Friday’s 17-13 victory against Harlequins.
And Australian prop Salesi Ma’afu also returns having completed a two-week ban for striking London Irish prop Tom Court.
Alex Waller, Gareth Denman, Sam Dickinson and Lee Dickson drop to the bench.
Dickson captained Saints in the game against Quins, but Wood will take on the role of skipper this weekend.
Saints are still without Dylan Hartley, Luther Burrell and George North, who remain in their respective international camps.
Gloucester have been boosted by the return of their Six Nations stars, with England duo Billy Twelvetrees and Jonny May named in the starting 15.
Wales hooker Richard Hibbard and Scotland scrum-half Greig Laidlaw also start at Kingsholm.
