Saracens team news to face Sale Sharks

Saracens have named their side to face Sale Sharks in Sunday’s round eight Aviva Premiership clash at the AJ Bell Stadium, kick-off 13h00.

Alex Lozowski has been named to start for Saracens at fly-half, with the England squad member returning to Club duty after being released from Eddie Jones’ England camp earlier this week. Lozowski will be partnered by Richard Wigglesworth in the halves with the former Sale Sharks ace lining up against his former club in the number nine jersey.

Brad Barritt will skipper the side from inside centre and he will be joined by Marcelo Bosch in the Saracens midfield. Andrew Fenby will make his Premiership debut for Saracens from full-back after two impressive outings during the Anglo-Welsh Cup campaign and he will be joined by Chris Wyles (left wing) and Mike Ellery (right wing).

In the front row, Schalk Brits starts at hooker alongside Richard Barrington (loosehead prop) and Juan Figallo (tighthead prop). In the second row, Michael Rhodes will partner Jim Hamilton. Kelly Brown starts at blindside flanker with Schalk Burger starting at openside. Jackson Wray will start at No8.
