Alex Goode is primed to deputise for the banned Owen Farrell in Saracens' No 10 shirt against Leinster on Saturday and he will relish the added responsibility — even if it makes his mother uneasy.

Goode is not fazed by the prospect of a head-to-head with Irish Lion Jonny Sexton, but it is causing parental jitters.
