Owen Farrell Set To Miss Saracens’ Quarter Final Clash – But He’s Not Injured

Out.

England international Owen Farrell will miss Saracens’ quarter final clash with Glasgow Warriors because his wife has gone into labour with their first child.

Farrell was set to start at ten this afternoon, but will now be replaced by Alex Goode who moves from fullback to the outhalf slot. Liam Williams takes his place at 15, with Dave Strettle coming onto the wing.

The door is apparently open for Farrell to arrive late onto the bench – but it’s unlikely.

A massive blow for the two-time European champions, but family comes first.
