Saracens' swiss army knife Alex Lozowski is reconciled to playing utility man as the Gallagher Premiership champions continue their title defence against Wasps. 

Lozowski began life as a fly-half but has made his name at outside centre and wore the 13 jersey in England's 35-15 defeat to Japan, before being hauled off at half-time by Eddie Jones. 

The 25-year-old's latest challenge was to shine on the wing at Welford Road and did just that, crossing the whitewash as Saracens beat Leicester Tigers 27-22 for an eighth straight league victory. 

Lozowski suggested while he'd rather have a settled spot in the side, he's happy to be at Mark McCall's beck and call. 

“Ultimately it’s nice to play in one position and try and be the best you can be in that position and nail down a place in the team," he told the Saracens official website.

"However I can do what I can do and if the coaches need me or want me to play somewhere else for the good of the team then I’m always happy to do that.”

On his try at Welford Road, he added: “As soon as I got around the first man, I thought I’m just going to go for the line here!

“I had a quick look around and saw there wasn’t any of our guys anywhere near, so it wasn’t a case of drawing a defender and putting someone else in, and as soon as I realised that I thought I’d back myself. I was excited and happy, it was a nice moment.”

The Brent-born star will take a trip down memory lane on Saturday when he faces former side Wasps, where he spent two seasons from 2014 before making the move to Allianz Park. 

In Round Eight, Wasps ended their worst run of form since moving to Coventry with a bonus-point win over newly-promoted Bristol Bears. 

Lozowski is wary of the threat posed by Dai Young's side. 

“They’ve probably been a bit up and down, but they’re a team who at their best can be devastating," he said. 

“We have to prepare for a Wasps team who are going to come and play their best game because we know they’re capable of it.

“They have some phenomenal players in their team who are capable of really hurting us on the day so even though they’ve had a few mixed results so far this season, we’re really preparing for them coming down and playing their best 80 minutes of rugby.”
