Two returning internationals!

  • England back rower Ben Earl is back for Saracens

We have never been a side that focuses on outcome; our focus has always been about the process and our energy levels were below the standards we set as a group.” – Jackson Wray

Ben Earl and Nick Tompkins will return from international duty to play for Saracens at Northampton Saints in the Gallagher Premiership.

The duo became the latest Academy graduates to earn caps for their respective countries – England and Wales – and slot in at openside flanker and inside centre respectively.

Winger Rotimi Segun has been reinstated on the flank while experienced Richard Wigglesworth is back at scrum-half. 

Following a four-week suspension, Will Skelton comes into the second row to partner Callum Hunter-Hill and USA prop Titi Lamositele replaces Springbok Vincent Koch at tighthead.

Number 8 Jackson Wray will captain the side at Franklin’s Gardens.
