Sports Mole looks ahead to Saturday's Aviva Premiership clash between struggling London Irish and high-flying Saracens at the Madejski Stadium.

London Irish will be desperate to end their recent run of poor form on Saturday when they host Saracens at the Madejski Stadium in the Aviva Premiership.

Brian Smith's men are currently second-bottom in the table following six defeats from their last seven outings.

However, their task of getting points on the board will be made difficult against a second-placed Sarries side who have triumphed in their last eight matches in all competitions.

Scott Lawson, George Skivington and Ian Humphreys all return for the hosts, while David Strettle, Will Fraser, George Kruis, Duncan Taylor and Joel Tomkins all feature for the visitors after international duty.
