Team News: Saracens vs Wasps


Seven out of the nine Saracens who featured for their countries last weekend come straight back into the starting XV for the visit of Wasps.

The front row is completely changed with Titi Lamositele, Jamie George and Vincent Koch packing down together. Maro Itoje also returns after an impressive autumn while Calum Clark earns his first Gallagher Premiership start on the flank in the only other alteration in the forwards.

Fresh from scoring three tries and winning his 50th Wales cap, Liam Williams slots in at 15 with Alex Goode moving to fly-half.

Sean Maitland scored two tries for Scotland in November and is selected on the wing, meaning the versatile Alex Lozowski switches to outside centre. Scrum-half Richard Wigglesworth starts at nine.

On the bench, Nick Isiekwe and Juan Figallo make their return from respective ankle and knee injuries.
