Saracens name team to face London Welsh

Saracens are in Aviva Premiership action on Sunday when they welcome London Welsh to Allianz Park, kick off is 2.15pm.

In team news ahead of the game, Director of Rugby Mark McCall makes two changes to the team that beat Leicester Tigers at Welford Road last weekend with Duncan Taylor starting the match at inside centre. The other change to the starting XV sees George Kruis partner captain Steve Borthwick in the second row.

On the replacement’s bench, Andy Saull makes a first appearance since before Christmas having recovered from a fractured thumb while Jamie George, Mouritz Botha and Ben Ransom all come into the matchday squad.

“London Welsh have been a highly competitive team all season and they bring a high level of intensity and work rate to matches,” explained McCall. “The challenge for us on Sunday, and for the remainder of the season, is to continue to build on our performances and concentrate on our own game plan. If we get those things right, we will give ourselves a good chance of getting the outcome that we want.”
