Farrell selected to start against Leinster


Owen Farrell has been selected at fly-half for Sunday's Champions Cup quarter-final against Leinster.

The 26-year-old missed last weekend's win over Harlequins due to a quad injury picked up on international duty.

Lock George Kruis (back), who also missed the game at London Stadium, is fit again and partners Maro Itoje in the row.

Sarries’ other change in the starting XV sees Mako Vunipola promoted to loosehead prop with Richard Barrington in reserve.

Captain Brad Barritt continues at 12 despite having surgery on a fractured cheekbone in midweek.
