Anthony Watson is also very likely to make his first appearance at Welford Road as a Tiger from the bench. For Sale, Bevan Rodd makes his first start of the campaign and Raffi Quirke returns to the bench for the first time since April in a promising sign for the Sharks and England. A tough result to predict, but Sale are in foreboding form, so one would think it’d be close.

In all of them, results have gone either way. Right now, you’ve got two teams who are at the top end of the table and both of whom will be pushing hard to get a result. “What we need to do – and we’ve spelt this out to the boys this week – is go there and put in a big, emotional performance.

Newcastle Falcons head coach Dave Walder alluded to as much: “The lads showed great attitude and intensity last Friday in beating Bristol, and the challenge now is to do it on a more consistent basis. “It’s no secret that Saracens are a class side, and you can’t fail to have been impressed by what they delivered last weekend in beating Leicester. “They look to be playing more rugby at times rather than going to their kick-chase game, but they’ve got both in their armoury and will test us in different ways.
