Team News: Saracens Men vs Glasgow Warriors


Brad Barritt returns to captain Saracens against Glasgow Warriors in the Heineken Champions Cup this weekend.

It will be the 32-year-old’s first match of 2019 following a head injury sustained in December and he partners an in-form Nick Tompkins in the centre.

Winger Alex Lewington replaces Sean Maitland who left the field in Lyon with a tight hamstring, while Ben Spencer comes in at scrum-half.

There are no changes in the forwards but Calum Clark and David Strettle return to the bench.

A Sarries win would make it six from six in the pool stages and secure a home quarter-final.
