Changes For Sarries
If it's Friday night it must mean the league leaders are in town. For the second week we host the side at the top of the tree and we must have a good chance of pulling off an excellent double.
WAY OUT WEST
Somewhere in the bowels of Premier Rugby there sits a soothsayer. How else would the fixture list evolve in quite the way it does. Last Friday Premiership leaders Exeter Chiefs visited Kingsholm.
