Strudwick returns for London Irish

A Gallagher Premiership Rugby ball

Strudwick has been sidelined for three months with a knee injury, but has now recovered to take his place in the Exiles' second row for Sunday's clash with Saracens at Vicarage Road.

London Irish are currently bottom of the Premiership table, two points short of fellow stragglers Bath – who they face next week in what is sure to be a mighty relegation dogfight.

In all, the Irish have made seven changes from the side beaten by Quins in their last Zurich outing, with Strudwick, Michael Horak, Mike Worsley, Naka Drotské, Rob Hardwick, James Cockle and Kieron Dawson all named in the starting line-up.

London Irish: 15 Michael Horak, 14 Paul Sackey, 13 Nick Burrows, 12 Brendan Venter, 11 Justin Bishop, 10 Barry Everitt, 9 Darren Edwards, 8 Chris Sheasby, 7 Kieron Dawson, 6 James Cockle, 5 Bob Casey, 4 Ryan Strudwick (captain), 3 Rob Hardwick, 2 Naka Drotské, 1 Mike Worsley.Replacements: 16 Kevin Barrett, 17 Mark Mapletoft, 18 Declan Danaher, 19 Adrian Flavin, 20 Kieran Roche, 21 Neal Hatley, 22 Simon Halford.
