Brown to skipper Sarries

Scottish flank Kelly Brown will captain Saracens in their exhibition match against the Vodacom Bulls at Allianz Park on Saturday.

The side shows 10 changes to the one that did duty in the European Champions Cup on Sunday, with a number of internationals missing out. Only prop Petrus du Plessis, lock Jim Hamilton, wing David Strettle, centre Jack Wilson and Brown remain from the 18-6 loss at Clermont.

Jackson Wray, will make his 100th appearance for the club, combining with Ernst Joubert and Brown in a strong back row.

Among the backs, former Springbok Neil de Kock will partner Charlie Hodgson at halfback. Saracens are yet to name their bench for the match.

Saracens are looking to complete a unique South African treble, after recent wins over the Sharks and Western Province.

Saracens – 15 Ben Ransom, 14 Jack Wilson, 13 Tim Streather, 12 Chris Wyles, 11 David Strettle, 10 Charlie Hodgson, 9 Neil de Kock, 8 Ernst Joubert, 7 Kelly Brown (c), 6 Jackson Wray, 5 Valentin Poparlan, 4 Jim Hamilton, 3 Petrus Du Plessis, 2 Brett Sharman, 1 Richard Barrington.
