    Saracens v Wasps

    Venue: Vicarage Road Date: Sunday, 29 March Kick-off: 1430

    England captain Steve Borthwick returns to lead Saracens as they look to keep alive their faint play-off hopes.

    An all-new front row of Cencus Johnston, Fabio Ongaro and Matias Aguero is joined by Chris Jack, Brad Barritt and Kameli Ratuvou.

    England trio Riki Flutey, Simon Shaw and James Haskell are all back in club action for Wasps.

    Twenty-year-old Joe Simpson is given a chance to impress at scrum-half as Eoin Reddan misses out with a thigh strain.

    Saracens: C Wyles, F Leonelli, K Ratuvou, B Barritt, R Penney, G Jackson, J Marshall; M Aguero, F Ongaro, C Johnston, T Ryder, S Borthwick (capt), Chris Jack, Wikus van Heerden, Ben Skirving.

    no pressure though, only European qualification riding on this one.

    Lulz Wasps. Snatch an unlikely lead with 6 minutes to go and then gift a try straight after the kick off.

    Bunch of newbs.

    Glad to see Justin Melck got a contract at Saracens, he won't let you down. Will fit in nicely with the "Sarrabokkes" theme as well. I missed the game but heard Marshall was man of the match, not such a terrible decision to sign him now is it?

    Wasps lose again. The decision to let Edwards coach Wales as well must be a factor in their terrible season. It simply sends out the wrong message to the Wasps players. I cant see how the Wasps board can let this nonsense continue. It has to be one job or the other.

    can't really use that as an excuse since they won the Premiership last year.

    I dont think they have the squad and Dallaglios retirement has also hit them hard but the coaching thing with Wales has to be a distraction.

    I'd say the Lions coaches on top of things is more of a distraction

    The Geech interview after the game seems to indicate that Cipriani will be on the flight to South Africa. Not really that surprising but he more or less said it.

    which should rule out the folly of suggestions that Wilkinson will be touring.

    Never count that out. Could see ROG left at home. Now that would be a laugh!

    Another heart-stopping win by Sarries. Sometimes you've got to wonder if they've got the WWE writing scripts for these games!!! Every game Saracens play at home and its a last minute try that wins it for us! :D

    would be the ultimate kick in the teeth to be overlooked for a walking injury.

    well Saracens just don't lose at home. simple.

    for all the Cipriani talk... ??? Why? He's been playing crap rugby ever since he's come back from injury. Flood, Geraghty, Goode, Myler, May, Hodgson and residency qualified Glen Jackson have all been better fly halves this season. Whether they have international credentials is another matter...

    Every home game, you come on and talk about how they're gonna hammer Sarries and then Sarries win! :D

    In fairness, I haven't said anything of the sort for a while, and they're still winning!
