Sarries U18 team to face Bristol
Saracens Under-18s head to Bristol Bears for their final match of the Academy League season on Saturday.
The young Sarries take on the West Country side at Clifton College (KO 14H00) looking to bounce back from a narrow defeat to Bath last weekend.
There are six changes from the last run out with Alex Cahill and Tom Mills forming a new centre partnership while Chris Hooper is promoted to the wing.
In the forwards, Samson Adejimi pack down in the front row alongside Harry Sturge and Harvey Beaton, and Matt Cannon starts at number four.
Nathan Bispham comes into the back row at blindside flanker.
Under-18s Forwards Coach Kelly Brown said: “This campaign has been a huge learning experience for us with different challenges posed every week.
“It’s the final game of the academy league and we can’t wait to see the boys express themselves, work hard and play like the team we know they can be.”
