Saracens prop Marco Riccioni knows what the Gallagher Premiership club can expect from Edinburgh Rugby in Round 4 of the Heineken Champions Cup on Sunday.

Sarries head to Scotland knowing they just edged the reverse fixture before Christmas, 30-26, and since then both have qualified for the knockout stages.

“They were very physical last time,” said the Italian international. “We have to bring that physicality back on.

“I think we’ve shown we can be more physical than anyone. We have to get into this mentality.”

A hat-trick of tries from Elliot Daly against Lyon secured Saracens a Round-of-16 spot last week as they ran out 48-28 winners – but Riccioni and his team-mates are focused on their next opponents rather than resting on their laurels.

“We can’t relax after scoring a lot of tries,” he said. “We can’t wait for the next challenge.”
