Five Saracens named in England squad to face France
Five Saracens have been picked by Steve Borthwick to take on France at Twickenham on Saturday.
Jamie George, Maro Itoje and Max Malins will start in Round Four of the Guinness Six Nations, with Mako Vunipola and Owen Farrell on the bench.
Marco Riccioni is also in international action this weekend, he is on the bench for Italy as they welcome Wales to Rome on Saturday afternoon.
Head Coach Borthwick said: "We look forward to welcoming a strong France team to Twickenham this weekend in what will undoubtedly be another exciting encounter in this year’s Six Nations competition.
Over the last three years France have built a formidable side and with just three games behind us, this England team has an excellent opportunity to test itself against one of the very best teams in the world, as we progress and build on the foundations we have put in place in the short time we have been together.
I know that a sold-out Twickenham will be in full voice, and that our magnificent supporters will make Saturday a very special occasion with a brilliant atmosphere.”
The next time they will run out in Saracens colours will be at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for The Showdown 3 in Association with City Index against Harlequins, book your tickets NOW!
