Saracens’ recognition on the international stage continued with five of the club’s players featuring in the England squad ahead of their Six Nations clash with France on Saturday.

Aviva Premiership player of the month Owen Farrell retained the England number ten shirt following his 12-point haul against Ireland.

Brad Barritt also kept his place in the team but makes a positional change from outside to inside centre to accommodate Leicester Tigers’ Manu Tuilagi. 

Sarries' dominance of the England backline continues with Alex Goode at full-back and Chris Ashton starting on the wing. 

They are joined on the bench by Mako Vunipola who scored twice in his man-of-the-match performance in Saracens' win over Exeter Chiefs last weekend.
