Andy Farrell will continue his rugby union education on Monday night with his second outing at inside centre for Saracens’ second team.

The former rugby league star was left out of Saracens match-day 22 against Bath on Sunday, and will play instead for the A team against Leicester on Monday.

"He’ll get another opportunity on Monday night to play at 12," Saracens skills coach Richard Graham said after his side’s impressive Guinness Premiership win over Bath.

"Our priority in the near future is Andy’s rugby education and as we’ve done all season we’ll pick players on form."

Graham was delighted with his team’s performance in scoring six tries against a strangely out-of-sorts Bath outfit.

Fly-half Glen Jackson, who bagged 23 points in a superb all-round display, and centre Ben Johnston were outstanding for the home side, and Graham paid tribute to them both.

"That was our best display of the season without doubt," he said.

"We’ve been trying to get Ben into the game early in recent weeks but unfortunately we haven’t been able to do that.

"Last week (against Cardiff) was the first time we’d done that and I thought he played very well last week as well."

Bath’s acting head coach Steve Meehan could not hide his frustration after his side’s lacklustre performance.

"We need a result and we need to experience winning again. I’m bitterly disappointed with that performance," Meehan said.

The Australian also revealed that England fly-half Olly Barkley had dislocated his finger and is a doubt for Friday night’s European Challenge Cup game in Montpellier.

"We won’t know the extent of any damage until he’s had some x-rays," Meehan said.
