Five changes for Sarries' trip to Northampton


Saracens have made five changes for the trip to Northampton Saints in the Aviva Premiership this weekend.

Fresh from scoring his first try for the club, Blair Cowan comes in for his first start while Schalk Brits begins at hooker – the only two amendments in the pack from last weekend’s Champions Cup loss to Leinster.

In the backs, Chris Wyles is restored to the wing with Sean Maitland swapping to the right flank and Liam Williams slotting in at full-back.

Ben Spencer begins at scrum-half and Alex Lozowski has been given the nod at outside centre.

Scotland international Duncan Taylor features in the Sarries 23 for the first time since Wasps away in January.
