England international Owen Farrell might make his debut for the defending champions Saracens in the ongoing season of the Aviva Premiership against Harlequins this weekend at Twickenham Stoop.
The 24-year-old, who was instrumental in Saracens' double triumph of Aviva Premiership and European Champions Cup last season sustained a back injury during the pre-season which forced him to miss the first three games of the ongoing tournament.
Saracens rugby director Mark McCall said a final call on Farrell's return will be taken based on his training session. However, the 48-year-old confirmed that George Kruis is certain to miss the Harlequins' encounter.
"Owen has trained and maybe has a chance for the weekend, we'll see how he is after Tuesday's training session. George didn't train, so he's unlikely, but we'll see how he is," McCall said.
"Both injuries are a little bit indeterminate. They're not those types of injuries where you have two weeks and you're back. They're both back injuries."
With three wins from as many games, Saracens are comfortably placed at second behind Bath with 14 points in the ongoing season of Aviva Premiership.
