Saracens name team for HAC friendly

Ahead of their final pre-season fixture Saracens have named their team to face Ospreys at the Honourable Artillery Company (HAC) on the evening of Thursday 23rd August.

Mark McCall retains six of his starting XV from last weekend’s win over Bedford Blues as he rotates his squad in the final stages of pre-season preparation.

David Strettle comes in on the wing for his first start since re-joining the Men in Black, he is partnered by Sean Maitland who continues in the number 11 jersey.

The fixture also sees a number of Saracens’ internationals return to action following time away with England on a training camp earlier in the month. Jamie George, Nick Isiekwe, Ben Spencer, Alex Lozowski and Michael Rhodes all start against the Welsh region while Maro Itoje is named on the bench.

Fans can catch the game live via the Saracens Facebook page, Saracens Official, with commentary from Will Fraser and Nick Heath. Kick-off is at 18H00.
