London Irish v Saracens live stream: How to watch from anywhere
We finally get to see Argentina great Agustin Creevy debut as he runs out for his London Irish debut today. He is one of 13 changes to the Exiles squad as they seek to get their first Gallagher Premiership win in four games, since rugby restarted. Sarries have also won the last seven encounters between these two.
Nine of Irish’s squad came through their academy system, but one name also jumps out from the bench – sevens record try-scorer Dan Norton could spring from the bench.
Saracens make 12 changes to the side which beat Gloucester, with heavy hitters Jamie George, Maro Itoje and Billy Vunipola coming into the pack alongside Springbok Vincent Koch. Scotland wing Sean Maitland is in the back three with playmaker Alex Goode.
