Hill to start for Saracens against Rotherham

A Gallagher Premiership Rugby ball

Saracens' World Cup winner Richard Hill will start Sunday's game against Rotherham Titans at Vicarage Road – kick off 3pm.

Hill and fellow World Cup star Kyran Bracken enjoyed their first training session back with the Men in Black today and after being assessed, head coach Rod Kafer will name Hill in the starting team with Bracken included in the 22.

New South African prop Cobus Visagie could also feature in the match although Kafer won't be naming his team until Friday lunchtime.

Kafer said: "Richard and Kyran both came through the training session this morning and they've fitted back into the squad well. Ever since they confirmed their availability at the beginning of the week we have been looking at getting them involved this weekend and I am pleased to confirm that Richard will start.

"We're going to start with Kyran on the bench on Sunday but I'm sure that he will get some game time. We've still got a few more players to look at like Cobus Visagie, who only joined us yesterday, and Alex Codling who just needs to have a final fitness test so we'll be naming the full team tomorrow lunchtime (Friday). Since there has been so much interest about our returning World Cup winners, we wanted to confirm their position in the team as soon as possible."
