From email..
Maro Itoje returns from injury to start for Saracens against Lyon in the Heineken Champions Cup.


International and club teammate Jamie George is reinstated at hooker after being rested last weekend and Jackson Wray is the third and final change in the pack, coming into the back row at six.

Still no Brad, reinforces my view that the clearout on him should have been reviewed at the time

Isiekwe rested presumably. He is due one and was not at his best against Sale.

I thought Woolsencroft wasn't in the squad, but just checked and he is

Tolufea is likely to be on his best form in France I would have thought

Is Fearns injured again? Seems to have been a no show for most of Lyons games?

Like others really like the look of the team just hope to see some composure from Farrell and the ball getting to our exciting backs. Great to have Maro and Wray back. COYS.

Looks like 5 changes for lyon in their starting XV (including Fearns at No.8). They caused a little upset by beating Montpellier away 14-25 last Saturday and are currently 5th in the Top14 with an 8 and 5 record (with one draw)

You occasionally get foreign names which offer a comedy moment for us Brits, however Cretin and Buttin are particularly unfortunate n'est ce pas?


That aside, I sincerely hope that Maro can restore some steel to a side that has been misfiring quite a lot recently, and do it without giving away any penalties! Coz that's the last thing we need after recent outings.

A win would be great but a decent performance would really be the icing on the cake.

The best of the lot being this one, who gave the BBC commentators a great deal of trouble when he played in the U20 Six Nations a couple of years ago:

The Lyon team/Squad is stronger than I had anticipated. Methinks they aren't throwing this one.

They are mildly entertaining diversions by the time the weekend approaches.

However, I ran into Rupes Recta today, which was positively alarming.
