Sports Mole looks ahead to Sunday's Aviva Premiership clash between Saracens and Wasps at Vicarage Road.

Second-placed Saracens have a chance to top the Aviva Premiership table this weekend when they take on London Wasps at Vicarage Road.

Mark McCall's side go into Sunday's match on the back on five wins in all competitions, while Wasps have put a couple of domestic victories together to help get them get back on track after an inconsistent start to the campaign.

Owen Farrell and Chris Ashton top the list of five names unavailable for the hosts due to international commitments, but Charlie Hodgson returns to the starting lineup.

James Haskell and Charlie Davies are among five players who have been brought into the Wasps side by coach Dai Young.
