Wigglesworth and Barritt return for Saracens

Wigglesworth and Barritt return for Saracens

Richard Wigglesworth and Brad Barritt return to the Saracens starting line-up for Saturday’s Aviva Premiership Rugby clash at Gloucester.

The return of the duo are the only two changes to the team that won 17-13 at Bath last weekend. Barritt has recovered from a fractured finger while Wigglesworth starts ahead of Neil de Kock on rotation.

But the club has been dealt a blow with the news that centre Adam Powell, who left the field midway through the first half at The Rec, will have surgery today (Friday) on a shoulder injury that will rule him out for three months.

On the bench, Jacques Burger returns from international duty with De Kock also among the replacements.
