Saracens will be looking to show a real statement of intent back in the Gallagher Premiership when they face Leicester Tigers.
Head coach Mark McCall’s side will make the trip to the Mattioli Woods Welford Road Stadium on Saturday (3pm) as they look to pick up a result against the in-form Tigers.
Steve Borthwick spent six years at Saracens as a player but has since overseen the renaissance of Tigers since taking over as head coach at the beginning of the 2020-21 campaign.
Tigers followed up their bonus-point win over Exeter with another against Gloucester Rugby and currently sit top of the table alongside Saints on ten points.
But 2019 champions Saracens provided a reminder of their quality in their victory over Bristol Bears on their return to the top flight and could lay down a marker with another win.
