Northampton Saints and the British Army have named their line-ups for Tuesday’s Mobbs Memorial match.

Five of the Saints forwards who start played some part in the LV= Cup final with Leicester on Sunday afternoon - including Ben Nutley, Alex Waller and Mark Sorenson who are joined by a mix of senior and Academy talent that impressed in the defeat of another forces side – the RAF – last week.

The British Army pose a sizeable challenge, however, former Saints prop Chris Budgen propping for the reigning Defence World Champions in a XV that includes Fijian 7s back row Ifereimi Boladau and former junior and 7s Springbok Gerhard Wessels in the centres. The pack will be led by a former Saints favourite, too; Heineken Cup winning front row Matt Stewart the Army’s current forwards coach.

Also featuring for the Army is former Kettering scrum-half Tom Chennell.

Entry is by ticket only and prices have been set at just £10 for adults or £3 for juniors and concs. The Saints Ticket Office is open today until 5pm or from 11am tomorrow morning. Supporters can buy online by visiting and printing their match tickets at home.
