Saracens will welcome back international duo Chris Wyles and Michael Tagicakibau for the visit of Harlequins on Sunday.

Wyles and Tagicakibau have been away playing for the USA and Fiji respectively but they return to the starting XV.

With Kameli Ratuvou ruled out for six months, Tagicakibau has been named in the centres with Wyles starting at full-back.

Sarries also welcome back South African trio Mouritz Botha, Jacques Burger and Ernst Joubert to the pack with Scotland international Kelly Brown named on the bench.

Harlequins have opted against tinkering with their starting XV despite the return of their international contingent.

Quins toppled Leeds Carnegie 51-18 last time out, so Nick Easter, Danny Care and Gonzalo Camacho have to settle for a place on the bench.

Saracens: 15 Chris Wyles, 14 David Strettle, 13 Michael Tagicakibau, 12 Brad Barritt, 11 James Short, 10 Owen Farrell, 9 Richard Wigglesworth, 8 Ernst Joubert, 7 Andy Saull, 6 Jacques Burger, 5 Mouritz Botha, 4 Steve Borthwick (capt), 3 Carlos Nieto, 2 Schalk Brits, 1 Deon Carstens.
Replacements: 16 Jamie George, 17 Rhys Gill, 18 Petrus du Plessis, 19 George Kruis, 20 Kelly Brown, 21 Neil de Kock, 22 Nils Mordt, 23 Noah Cato.

Harlequins: 15 Mike Brown, 14 George Lowe, 13 Ollie Smith, 12 Jordan Turner-Hall, 11 Tom Williams, 10 Nick Evans, 9 Karl Dickson, 1 Joe Marler, 2 Joe Gray, 3 James Johnston, 4 Tomas Vallejos, 5 George Robson, 6 Chris Robshaw (c), 7 Will Skinner, 8 Tom Guest
Replacements: 16 Chris Brooker, 17 Ceri Jones, 18 Mark Lambert, 19 Ollie Kohn, 20 Nick Easter, 21 Danny Care, 22 Rory Clegg, 23 Gonzalo Camacho
