Edinburgh will be without the injured Jamie Ritchie, Darcy Graham and Blair Kinghorn for their European Challenge Cup clash with Saracens in the Scottish capital.


Edinburgh had previously confirmed that Viliame Mata and Damien Hoyland faced lay-offs with knee injuries.

Charlie Savala comes in at stand-off after Kinghorn was ruled out with a head injury, while Jaco van der Walt makes a timely return from injury to be named among the replacements.

Mark Bennett, Pierre Schoeman, Stuart McInally, WP Nel and Marshall Sykes all return to the starting line-up.

Head coach Mike Blair said: “This is a real challenge for the club. Saracens are one of the best teams in Europe and it will give us a really good measure of where we’re at.

“We’ve been really pleased with some of things we’ve been able to achieve in the URC so far, but this week has a different feel to it and we’re just looking forward to the challenge.”
