Returning duo can provide boost - Sorrell
Kevin Sorrell has hailed the return of midfield duo Brad Barritt and Duncan Taylor, ahead of Saracens' top four clash against Bath on Sunday.
England centre Brad Barritt will be making his first appearance since recovering from a leg injury, to partner Duncan Taylor, who is also making his comeback from a spell on the sidelines. The return of the midfield duo is something that the Saracens backs coach says he is relishing.
“Brad’s quality speaks for itself," said Sorrell. "He’s was out for six weeks, had a day or two training before the Munster match and produced a superb performance in that match. He’s really important to us and we’ve got it’s great to get Duncan back as well. It’s pleasing to see these boys back.
“We’ve had really good week’s preparation. The lads have been in good form and final session today and have looked really sharp."
On Sunday’s opponent Bath, Sorrell added: “Bath have great depth to their squad. So even when they have players away on international duty they can put out a strong side. They are playing some really good rugby, they have good shape, a solid defence and their league position shows that. They are a real threat.”
