Saracens name side for trip to Exeter Chiefs

Saracens name side for trip to Exeter Chiefs

Saracens make their first trip to Sandy Park to face Exeter Chiefs on Saturday with the Aviva Premiership entering its final three rounds.

Going into the round 20 clash, Saracens make just two changes to the side from that which extended its winning run to eight games in all competitions against Bath earlier this month.

Second row Mouritz Botha comes into the starting line-up with Steve Borthwick ruled out this weekend with a minor shoulder knock, while Jacques Burger also returns to the starting XV with Andy Saull named on the bench. Ernst Joubert captains the side.

The only other change to the matchday 23 sees Hugh Vyvyan come onto the replacements bench.
