Saracens captain Brad Barritt is set to make his 200th appearance for the club as they take on Wasps at Allianz Park on Sunday.

Barritt, who will start at inside centre, will become the fourth current squad member to reach the milestone.

The North-London club are unbeaten in their last 17 home games, and will be looking to extend that run against a Wasps side who have been unconvincing so far this season.

Wasps are currently enduring a three-match losing streak, and face the prospect of losing four in a row for the first time in the Premiership since March 2014.

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall said: “We are playing against an outstanding team who are desperate.

“They’ve lost by small margins and have got great players across their team - players who can hurt you from long distance.

“Last weekend we came away from Sixways with a good away win at Worcester Warriors and our focus this week has been preparing to face Wasps, a team who we have enjoyed some great battles with over the last few seasons.

“They’ve hurt us from long distance over the last couple of years. But they’ve also got real grunt in their pack. A fantastic back row as well. We are expecting a very difficult game.

“Wasps have quality throughout their squad, and as always, they will pose us a real challenge on Sunday.”

Wasps director of rubgy Dai Young said: “If you look from a negative viewpoint, it’s not the game you want on the back of a couple of losses when you’ve got a load of injuries.

“We know we’re going to have to be at our best, but these are the games you want to play in to challenge yourself.”
