Saracen’s Owen Farrell fit for European Champions Cup clash against Toulon


Owen Farrell has missed the opening six matches of the Premiership season with back and hip problems.

Alex Lozowski has proved an able deputy in the England fly-half’s absence, scoring four tries and contributing a total of 66 points after joining from Wasps during the close season, but Mark McCall’s first-choice number 10 will make his return at Stade Mayol.


Brad Barritt captains a side that also includes Alex Goode, Maro Itoje and Billy Vunipola in a match between the last two European champions.

Flanker Jackson Wray will make his 150th appearance for the club.

Saracens XV in full: Alex Goode, Sean Maitland, Marcelo Bosch, Brad Barritt, Chris Wyles, Owen Farrell, Richard Wigglesworth; Mako Vunipola, Jamie George, Juan Figallo, Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Jackson Wray, Schalk Burger, Billy Vunipola.

Replacements: Schalk Brits, Richard Barrington, Petrus Du Plessis, Jim Hamilton, Michael Rhodes, Ben Spencer, Alex Lozowski, Mike Ellery.
