Figure image
Former Leicester Tigers back row Paul Gustard has been called into the Saracens side for Sunday's Guinness Premiership match against his old club.

Director of rugby Alan Gaffney has made just one change to his starting line-up following the win at Worcester Warriors last weekend, with the 31-year-old Gustard returning from injury to claim a place at blindside flanker for the Tigers encounter at Vicarage Road.

Prop Tom Mercey returns after missing the Worcester game with David Seymour also coming on to the bench.

Full-back Francisco Leonelli is injured, while Moses Rauluni, Kameli Ratuvou and Fabio Ongaro were not considered for selection after their return from the World Cup.
