Poppy Cleall is ready to unleash a month’s worth of frustration when Saracens Women welcome DMP Sharks to the StoneX Stadium on a thrilling weekend of rugby.

It was approximately one year ago that Alex Austerberry's side last welcomed the Sharks to North London, with a resounding 104-0 victory that placed Saracens top of the Allianz Premier 15s table.

And the team will face DMP Sharks once more in a 2pm kick off on Saturday.

Saracens have made a slow start to their title defence and currently sit seventh with two wins and two defeats.

And following their postponed match against Sale Sharks in December, Cleall is over the moon to get back on the pitch after a month of waiting.

She said: "I'm so excited to be back and ready to finally get out there.

"It's been a long time since we came back but we're here now and raring to go.

"There’s so much energy in there and it’s ready to be unleashed at the weekend. Having it at home as well just adds something extra to it.

"Our aim is to be in the play-offs and be in the mix come the end of the season, so now we need to get our heads down and work hard for that because of where we are in the table."

Cleall has been named alongside Marlie Packer and Ireland international Grace Moore in the backrow while Ella Wyrwas and Zoe Harrison line up as number 9 and 10 respectively.

An exciting looking back three sees Lotte Clapp and Sarah McKenna joined by Jess Breach, who will make her highly anticipated debut in a Saracens shirt after joining from Harlequins in the summer.

Meanwhile, Saracens men's side have soared to the top of the Gallagher Premiership Rugby table this season and will have a first victory of 2023 on their mind as they take on Gloucester Rugby this evening.

Mark McCall's team have suffered just one defeat in the league this season, falling on the sword of London Irish before Christmas.

Saracens saw a narrow 25-24 loss to Gloucester last time out in the Premiership one year ago with Alex Lewington bring them within one point of the visitors with three minutes to go.

But Alex Lozowski's conversion crept wide of the sticks and the home side succumbed to defeat.

Lewington will make his 100th appearance for the team on the road this evening, the centurion named on the left wing in the starting XV.
