Saracens name side for Sale Sharks


Saracens have named their side to face Sale Sharks in Sunday’s round four of the European Rugby Champions Cup clash at the AJ Bell Stadium (kick-0ff 17h30).

Mark McCall makes two changes to the starting XV who defeated Sale Sharks in round three at Allianz Park, with Schalk Brits rotating with Jamie George at hooker and Jackson Wray retuning to the side after recovering from a knock to take his place in the back row.

Schalkk Burger starts at openside with Mike Rhodes named on the blindside flank.

Petrus Du Plessis (tighthead prop) starts alongside Mako Vunipola (loosehead prop) and Schalk Brits (hooker) in the front-row. Maro Itoje and George Kruis continue in the Saracens second row.

In the backs, Owen Farrell (fly-half) partners Richard Wigglesworth (scrum-half) in the halves, whilst Brad Barritt skippers the side from inside centre alongside Argentine international Marcelo Bosch. In the back three, Sean Maitland is named on the right wing joining Chris Wyles (left wing) and Alex Goode (full-back).
