Saracens name side for Sale Anglo-Welsh Cup clash


Saracens have named their side for Friday evening’s Anglo-Welsh Cup second round clash away to Sale Sharks at the AJ Bell Stadium, kick-off 20h00.

Anglo-Welsh Cup coach Adam Powell makes three changes to the starting line-up to the side that faced Harlequins in round one at Allianz Park last weekend, with Rotimi Segun, Scott Spurling and Mark Flanagan coming into the side. Lock forward Flanagan has returned from Munster where he has recently been on loan with the Irish Province.

Up front, Scott Spurling comes in at hooker for Christopher Tolofua who is away on international duty with France. 24-year old Spurling is joined by Richard Barrington (loosehead prop) and Kieran Longbottom (tighthead prop) in the Sarries front-row. At lock, Flanagan comes into the side to partner Will Skelton with Danny Cutmore moving to the bench. In the back-row, Jack Nay and Joel Conlon continue with Ben Earl skippering the side from No8.

In the backs, Tom Whiteley partners Max Mallins, with Nick Tompkins lining up alongside Rotimi Segun at centre. Mike Ellery, Nathan Earle and Matt Gallagher make-up the back-three.
