Chris Wyles thought his Saracens career was done and dusted.

The USA winger signed off in style with their Premiership crown in May and hung up his boots to focus on life after rugby.

But an injury crisis in the back three has led to Wyles dusting off his kit and going again.

And the winger will make his 254th appearance for Saracens this weekend in their clash with Sale Sharks.

With Sean Maitland and Liam Williams on international duty and David Strettle, Ali Crossdale and Matt Gallagher all injured, the 35-year-old was given the call.

“It’s a bit surreal but I’m delighted to be back and to have the opportunity to play for Saracens again,” Wyles said.

“The possibility of getting back out in front of the Allianz Park crowd and playing in front of the people who have been most supportive of me and Wolfpack is an awesome thought.”

This weekend sees Sarries take on Sale Sharks on Saturday and there are a number of big names who return after the three weeks of Premiership Rugby Cup action.

Captain Brad Barritt, October player of the month Alex Goode and scrum-half Ben Spencer are back in action for the first time in four weeks while Nick Tompkins is also granted a start.

In the pack, Tom Woolstencroft earns his first league start for the Men in Black, as does Cornish Pirates loanee Christian Judge.

Mike Rhodes begins at six after being released back to the club by England – he partners Schalk Burger, who has two tries in three games, and Jackson Wray in the back row.
