In addition Saracens’ Director of Rugby Mark McCall is set to name his strongest line-up including a host of internationals and England stars.

Ahead of the fixture, Blues Director of Rugby Mike Rayer said: “We have a great working relationship with Saracens and to play against one of Europe’s biggest sides is a huge challenge, one that the players are really looking forward to.

“Saracens are set to send out their first team for the fixture against us and that is testament to how highly they regard us. I’m sure it will be a cracking night against some of the world’s best players, so we need the fantastic Bedford support to be our 16th man.”
