TEAM NEWS: Saracens team to play Bath in the Premiership

Chris Wyles will make his 250th appearance for Saracens this weekend when Bath visit Allianz Park on Sunday.

The veteran USA international made his debut for the club 10 years previous as a replacement against Sale Sharks in September 2008.

He forms part of a backline which has one change from the win at Northampton Saints last Saturday – Richard Wigglesworth reinstated at nine.



Dom Day and Schalk Burger come into the pack with Maro Itoje and Blair Cowan rested from the match day squad.

South African Michael Rhodes (hamstring) returns from a lengthy spell on the sidelines and is joined on the bench by Ben Earl and Alex Goode.

The match comes too soon for Billy Vunipola (arm) and Vincent Koch (ankle).
