Saracens name team to face Worcester


Saracens have named their team to face Worcester Warriors in round 14 of the Aviva Premiership at Sixways on Saturday, kick-off 15h00.

Brad Barritt returns to captain the side after serving a three-week suspension.  Barritt starts at inside centre to partner the in-form Nick Tompkins in Sarries midfield, with Chris Ashton (right wing), Mike Ellery (left wing) and Matt Gallagher (full-back) starting in the back-three.

At half-back, Alex Lozowski starts at fly-half after returning from England camp to partner scrum-half Richard Wigglesworth.

Up front, Richard Barrington, Schalk Brits and Petrus Du Plessis are named in the front-row with Michael Rhodes and Jim Hamilton packing down at lock. In the back row, Will Fraser continues in the side at blindside flanker joining Schalk Burger (openside flanker) and Jackson Wray (No8).

On the bench, Jared Saunders, Titi Lamositele and Juan Figallo are the front-row replacements, with Mark Flanagan and Kelly Brown the other forward options. Ben Spencer is the scrum-half cover with youngster Max Malins coming into the matchday 23 on the back of a Man of the Match performance for England U20 last weekend. Marcelo Bosch will wear the number 23 jersey.
