“We have an exciting squad with a great mix of senior players, Academy players and a couple of new faces who are keen to showcase their skills.
“The Premiership 7s is a fantastic opportunity for players to pull on the Saracens jersey early in the year and show their intent for the new season. I know the players will bring a huge amount of energy and enthusiasm this weekend and we’re looking forward to the competition.”
