Sports Mole previews Worcester Warriors' game against Northampton Saints in the Aviva Premiership tomorrow.

Northampton Saints travel to Sixways Stadium to face Worcester Warriors in a mid-table clash in the Aviva Premiership tomorrow.

The home side have Andy Goode back at fly-half after recovering from illness, while prop Euan Murray returns from international duty.

The Warriors will be hoping that the return of the duo helps them put last weekend's crushing 32-9 defeat to Bath behind them.

The Saints also come into the game off the back of a defeat, having been beaten 11-27 by Gloucester last Saturday.

A much-changed side sees Ben Foden, Courtney Lawes and Tom May all come into the starting lineup for the visitors.
