Saracens name team face Bath


Saracens have named their side to face Bath Rugby in Saturday’s round two Aviva Premiership clash at The Rec, kick-off 14h00 (Live on BT Sport).

Mark McCall makes two changes to the side that beat Northampton Saints in the opening round of the Aviva Premiership, with Chris Wyles and Michael Rhodes coming into the side for Sean Maitland and George Kruis, who both miss the game due to slight knocks.

Wyles comes into the side on the left-wing, with Nathan Earle shifting to the right flank to replace Maitland. Alex Goode continues at full-back, with Brad Barritt captaining the side from centre alongside Duncan Taylor. Alex Lozowski is named at fly-half alongside Richard Wigglesworth in the halves.

Up front, Richard Barrington, Schalk Brits and Vincent Koch continue with Maro Itoje moving up to lock to partner former Bath pack star Dominic Day. Michael Rhodes comes into the side at blindside flanker, alongside Schalk Burger and Jackson Wray in the back-row.

On the bench, summer signings Christopher Tolofua and Liam Williams could make their Saracens debuts with Mako Vunipola and Owen Farrell also named as replacements.
