England star Elliot Daly could make his return from injury for his club Saracens when they face Exeter Chiefs in the Gallagher Premiership clash on Saturday.

The news was confirmed by Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall.

"He is available for selection this weekend," he said.

Daly has been sidelined with a stress fracture since his return from British and Irish Lions' tour of South Africa and has already underwent a surgery to address the issue.

The news will be a big boost to Saracens as they already miss the services of Owen Farrell and Jamie George due to injuries.

This will also be the first time Saracens will be locking horns with Exeter Chiefs since they were relegated from the top tier at the end of the 2019/20 season for a series of salary cap breaches.

Three out of Saracens' last four Premiership titles came after beating Exeter Chiefs in the finals and following the salary cap breaches news, Rob Baxter was very vocal about criticising McCall's side.

"I think we try to keep it on an even keel. We try not to hype things up too much.

"We want to be a really consistent team who don't pick and choose when we get more motivated than when we don't.

"There are obviously games certain individuals are going to really enjoy getting up for, and for some people that might be Exeter.

"Our motivation is very inward in lots of ways. We've got a really good group who care a lot about what they do and a lot about each other, and that has served us well down the years."
