South Africa prop Vincent Koch is back in the Saracens side this weekend after recovering from Covid-19.

Koch tested positive for the virus last week, forcing him to miss Saracens’ win over Northampton Saints.

The prop is now back, however, and he is one of five changes to the Saracens XV for tomorrow’s match at home to Gloucester.

Tim Swinson has come into the second row, while Dom Morris starts at centre, Andy Christie is in the back-row and Rotimi Segun is on the wing.

“Gloucester are a really strong team with good fundamentals,” said Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall.

“Their pack is strong with a good scrum, line-out and driving maul. Their half-backs are playing well and they have an exciting back line.

“They are a dangerous side. This will be our sixth home game in the league and if we can win it will leave us in a good position.”
