Saracens name team to face Bath in Aviva Premiership Rugby Final

Saracens have named their side for Saturday’s Aviva Premiership Final against Bath at Twickenham Stadium, kick-off 14h30.

Mark McCall names an unchanged team to the side that beat Northampton Saints at Franklin’s Gardens in last weekends’ play-off semi-final.

Up front, Mako Vunipola starts at loosehead prop alongside hooker Jamie George and tighthead prop Petrus Du Plessis.

In the second row, Alistair Hargreaves captains the side and will start alongside England international George Kruis at lock.

In the back-row, fresh from a Man of the Match performance in the Premiership semi-final, Jacques Burger continues at openside flanker. Burger is joined by Maro Itoje (blindside flanker) and Billy Vunipola (No8).

At half-back, Richard Wigglesworth starts at scrum-half with Owen Farrell named at fly-half.

In the backs, Brad Barritt continues at inside centre and is partnered by Duncan Taylor, whilst Chris Wyles and David Strettle are named on the wings. Alex Goode is named at full-back.
