Goode set to make 250th Saracens appearance against Northampton Saints

Alex Goode will make his 250th appearance for Saracens after being named as part of their team to face Northampton Saints in the Champions Cup at Allianz Park on Saturday, kick off 15H15.

Goode starts at full-back in a back line which sees just one change from the side that drew with Ospreys last weekend – Chris Wyles rotating with Sean Maitland on the wing.

Up front, Saracens make a number of changes to the pack.

In the second row Nick Isiekwe partners George Kruis while in the back row Maro Itoje moves to six and Schalk Burger comes in to start at 8.

Calum Clark retains the number 7 shirt while the front row is unchanged.

On the bench new signing Sione Vailanu could be in line to make his debut after being named among the replacements while prop Hayden Thompson-Stringer is named in a Champions Cup match day 23 for the first time this season.
