Barritt forced to have surgery

It's confirmed, Barritt forced to go under knife

Saracens captain Brad Barritt will miss this week’s Gallagher Premiership game against Harlequins because he’s to have surgery on a facial injury.

The South African-born centre was forced off in the first half of Saturday’s 50-27 win over Bath at Allianz Park after catching a boot to the face in a tackle.

The former England international saw a consultant after the match to discover the extent of the damage and will have surgery this week, ruling him out for the Quins match at the Twickenham Stoop.

The club has not said whether Barritt will be fit in time for their Heineken Champions Cup opener against Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun on October 14th.

Saracens, the defending Premiership champions, have made a blistering start to the season winning all five matches, taking maximum points in the process and sit top, a point ahead of Exeter Chiefs.
