12:24pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in Sport
New signing Marcelo Bosch is named on the bench and Jacques Burger returns to the back row as Saracens take on Toulouse at Wembley tomorrow night in the Heineken Cup.
Bosch was officially unveiled as a Saracens player yesterday although it is understood he has been training with the squad this week and was therefore deemed ready to be involved.
Burger was granted leave to attend a family wedding last week but replaces Will Fraser who took a knock to his shoulder against Connacht.
In what is perhaps the only surprise selection, Duncan Taylor comes in for Joel Tomkins at centre and lines up alongside Chris Wyles.
Richard Wigglesworth replaces Neil de Kock at scrum-half while James Johnston will have to wait to face off against brother Census as he starts on the bench.
