TEAM NEWS: Saracens vs Bristol Rugby

Olly Robinson returns to the starting line-up as Bristol Rugby face reigning Premiership champions Saracens on Saturday (3pm KO).

The back rower is one of two changes to the side that suffered defeat to Wasps, as Jack O’Connell comes into the front row.

Ollie Dawe could make his Premiership debut from the replacements bench, while Siale Piutau recovers from a knee injury to be included in the 23-man squad ahead of the Allianz Park clash.

“It’s important we continue to prepare with the right attitude and end the season on a high. We go to Saracens – one of the toughest places in the league – with a determination to put in a solid performance and take the game to our opposition,” said Head Coach Mark Tainton.

“We know there will be plenty of travelling support from the West Country, so we want to give the Bristol fans something to cheer about at Allianz Park.”
