Scottish international Simon Taylor will start his first game for almost a year when he lines up in Saracens colours on Wednesday night.
Back-row star Taylor, currently on a week's loan with the Premiership club, features at number eight against South African Super 12 side The Cats at Vicarage Road.
Taylor made a 20-minute substitute's appearance when Saracens beat Premiership rivals Northampton last Saturday, but he now features in a powerful starting line-up alongside the likes of Taine Randell, Iain Fullarton and Raphael Ibanez.
Taylor suffered a serious knee ligament injury during last season's RBS 6 Nations Championship, yet he is now on course for an international return ahead of the Lions tour to New Zealand this summer.
England flanker James Haskell insists he will be pushing as hard as possible to be back from a toe injury in time to make his case for a spot in Eddie Jones' side looking to defend their RBS 6 Nations title next year.
