Maro Itoje included in Saracens side to face Bath

England lock Maro Itoje was a late inclusion in the Saracens side for their Aviva Premiership game at Bath.

The European player of the year missed England's four-Test autumn series after breaking his right hand during Saracens' European Champions Cup clash against the Scarlets in late October.

A six week lay-off ensued, but he returned to action at the Recreation Ground on Saturday as Saracens looked to maintain their place at the Aviva Premiership summit.

And Itoje's comeback arrived a week before Saracens resume their European campaign through back-to-back games against Sale Sharks.
