Blue Bulls To Play Friendly Against Saracens

Saracens will play the Blue Bulls in a friendly fixture in the North London suburb of Hendon on Saturday 31 January, 2015.  The Pretoria side will field a full strength side against the English Premiership league winners.  Mark McCall, Director of Rugby, said, “The Vodacom Blue Bulls are always formidable opposition, and we look forward to another  fantastic occasion at Allianz Park.  Our players greatly enjoyed the match against the Sharks last January, as these matches against top southern hemisphere opposition become part of our annual calendar.”

Blue Bulls boss Frans Ludeke said, “Saracens are closely followed and well supported throughout South Africa.  They have been performing really well in the Premiership and the European Cup, and might easily have won both competitions last month.  We look forward to a great game on the artificial turf at Allianz Park.”
