Barritt set for Sarries start

30th December 2013 09:30


Fit again England centre Brad Barritt is set to return to the starting XV for Saracens' Premiership clash with Gloucester this weekend.

Barritt came off the bench in Sarries' 26-8 win over Worcester on Saturday, and Director of Rugby Mark McCall is set to promote him to the starting XV.

"To have Brad back was a highlight and he should get 80 minutes against Gloucester next weekend," McCall told the Express.

Meanwhile, Harlequins boss Conor O'Shea was irritated his side fell short of a bonus point in their 22-6 victory over Exeter Chiefs at Twickenham.

"It's frustrating we didn't get a bonus point but we played some magnificent rugby," said O'Shea.

"Our aim after the difficult start to the season was to be in the top four at halfway, which we are. We will get stronger."
