Saracens vs Gloucester: Match-Ups

Owen Farrell vs Danny Cipriani

The long debate over if Gloucesters's Danny Cipriani should be included in the England squad further rumbled on as the classy out-half was named Premiership player of the year. However the incumbent in the England team, Owen Farrell, who has arguably been England's best player over the last 5 years. It promises for a fascinating match-up, both displaying different qualities.

Billy Vunipola vs Ben Morgan

Both fighting for a spot in the England squad, however Billy Vunipola put in a career best performance against Leinster last weekend which has had the whole of the rugby world singing his praises, which gives Vunipola the edge over Morgan. Both strong ball carriers and both are crucial to their team. Morgan averages 12 carries per game meanwhile Vunipola averages 13 per game in the Premiership, both looking to get involved.

Alex Goode vs Jason Woodward

Again both crucial cogs in their teams engines. Goode has been fantastic for Saracens which have led for fans clamouring for an England call up, excellent from the boot and strong under the high ball. Meanwhile Woodward has been a crucial signing for Gloucester and is always a joy to watch going forward. Should be a fun match-up, lets hope Goode has sobered up after his monumental effort after the Champions Cup final.
