Elsewhere up front, in-form loosehead Mako Vunipola continues in the No1 shirt, and is joined by Jamie George and Petrus Du Plessis in the Sarries front row.

In the back row, Jackson Wray starts at No8 with Billy Vunipola just missing out on the crunch Premiership clash with a slight ankle complaint. Kelly Brown starts at blindside flanker, with Namibian loose-forward
Jacques Burger named at openside.

Mark McCall is forced into a backline reshuffle, with Brad Barritt missing out with a slight knock. Chris Wyles comes into Saracens midfield in place of Barritt to wear the No12 jersey and partners Marcelo Bosch at centre.

In the halves, Richard Wigglesworth captains the side from scrum-half and will link up with Charlie Hodgson, who starts at fly-half.

In the back three, David Strettle starts on the left wing with Chris Ashton named on the opposite flank – Alex Goode continues at full-back.
