Saracens heading to Wembley

Saracens are in LV=Cup action on Saturday as they travel to Llanelli Scarlets and Matt Stevens is in line to make his debut for the club after being named on the bench for the clash at Parc y Scarlets.

Alex Goode also comes back into the side to start at fly-half after missing the past two weeks with injury. Owen Farrell switches to inside centre while Rodd Penney, just days after rejoining from Aironi, also starts.

Kevin Barrett, Jamie George and Jared Saunders are among those also in the starting XV.

On the bench, Stevens gets the chance following 53 minutes for the Saracens Storm earlier in the week and Tom Ryder could also make his first appearance of 2010/11 after returning from a loan spell with Glasgow Warriors earlier in the season.
