Elliot Daly will make his long-awaited return from injury this weekend in Saracens' final match before the Gallagher Premiership semi-finals.

Daly has not played for the London club since suffering a torn hamstring in a Champions Cup pool stage defeat against Edinburgh on January 22.

The full-back returns to the starting XV for a much-changed Sarries side to take on Bath in the final round of the regular season, co-captaining the team alongside hooker Ethan Lewis.

Daly was selected in England head coach Steve Borthwick’s first squad prior to his injury, but with the World Cup quickly approaching, he will know he has only a handful of opportunities to impress and reclaim a place in the national squad.

“I can’t wait to get back out there again on Saturday,” said Daly.

“It’s been a long journey back but thanks to all of the medical and S&C staff who have helped me along the way.

“We want to build some momentum ahead of the semi-final, so it’s a big day for all of us.”

Saracens are already assured of top spot ahead of their trip to the Recreation Ground in Round 24, ending a seven-year wait to finish first in the regular season. 

They went onto win Premiership the title that year against Exeter, with flanker Jackson Wray a second-half replacement in a 28-20 win at Twickenham.

Flanker Wray announced last week that he will call time on his career following the climax to this year’s campaign.  

The 32-year-old came through the Saracens Academy alongside the likes of Owen Farrell, Jamie George and George Kruis and has been at the club since the age of 15, racking up more than 300 senior appearances.

Ahead of his swansong, director of rugby Mark McCall paid tribute to Wray’s continued influence on the club.

“Jackson embodies everything that is good about Saracens - hardworking, tough, resilient, consistent and team first always,” he said.

“He has had an extraordinary impact and influence on our club and is hugely respected and admired by all players and staff, past and present.

“Jacko has not only been at the heart of the club’s biggest moments but has also led the way in many international windows and our younger players have benefitted hugely from his experience and his example in these periods."
