Team named to face Worcester Warriors

Prop Rhys Gill will make his 100th appearance for Saracens against Worcester Warriors at Allianz Park on Sunday on a day when Jacques Burger will also make his first start for the club since December 2011.

Gill returns to the starting line-up for the Aviva Premiership clash against the Warriors and he will become the newest member of the 100 Club. Burger has battled back from a knee injury to take his place in the back row.

In other team news, Charlie Hodgson, John Smit, George Kruis, Mouritz Botha and Jackson Wray all come into the starting line-up with Owen Farrell, Schalk Brits, Steve Borthwick, Alistair Hargreaves and Ernst Joubert all rested on rotation. Chris Wyles and Alex Goode switch places in the starting XV and the replacement's bench as do Neil de Kock and Richard Wigglesworth.

Kelly Brown captains the side.

Speaking ahead of the game, Director of Rugby Mark McCall said: "Worcester have quality players throughout their line-up and are well coached by Richard Hill. They regularly prove they are capable of producing high quality displays against any opposition and they will provide a stern test for us, but we can't wait to run out at Allianz Park once again."
