Saracens name side to face Wasps

Saracens have named their side to face Wasps at the Ricoh Arena in round 17 of the Aviva Premiership, Sunday kick-off 14h00.

Mark McCall’s side travel to Coventry to face a resurgent Wasps side, and the Saracens director of rugby has included returning England trio Alex Goode, Mako Vunipola and Richard Wigglesworth in his starting line-up.

Loosehead prop Vunipola starts the game alongside Jamie George and Petrus Du Plessis in the Saracens front row. Elsewhere in the pack, Scotland international lock forward Jim Hamilton comes into the side to partner Saracens captain Alistair Hargreaves in the second row.

Fresh from a Man of the Match performance against the Newcastle Falcons, Maro Itoje retains a place in the Saracens starting XV, with the England Saxons international starting the game at blindside flanker. Jacques Burger continues at openside flanker, to join Jackson Wray who starts at No8.

Richard Wigglesworth partners Alex Goode in the halves, with Brad Barritt continuing to line-up alongside Marcelo Bosch at centre.

With David Strettle rested, Chris Wyles starts on the left wing whilst Chris Ashton returns to the side to wear the number 14 jersey. Ben Ransom continues at full-back.
