Saracens name team to play Glasgow Warriors

Saracens name team to play Glasgow Warriors

Saracens have made five changes for their first Heineken Champions Cup pool stage match against Glasgow Warriors.

Captain Brad Barritt is fit to play following an operation on a facial injury sustained in Gallagher Premiership action a fortnight ago.

It forced the 32-year-old to miss Sarries’ win at Harlequins where Maro Itoje came off the bench for his 100th appearance for the Men in Black. He slots in on the flank for the trip to Scotland.

Former Glasgow winger Sean Maitland is promoted to the starting XV while tighthead prop Vincent Koch returns from Springbok duty to take the number three jersey.

Scrum-half Richard Wigglesworth is the only other alteration.
