Kelly Brown excited by Allianz Park
Kelly Brown can’t wait for Sunday’s game, not just at the prospect of facing Harlequins in a table-topping clash, but also the chance to play at Allianz Park for the first time.
It’s first against second at Saracens and a third successive sell out at the club’s new home, kick off 2pm, and although it will be the third Premiership match to take place at Allianz Park, it could be a first experience for Brown who has been away on international duty for the past two months.
The Scottish captain, who led his side to their best Six Nations showing for many years, was impressed with the pitch and surroundings when he trained with the rest of the squad on Wednesday at Allianz Park.
He said: “It’s fantastic to be back with Saracens. I was training here yesterday, and for me it’s the first time I’ve been able to get a proper feel of the place, as I’ve been away since the weekend of the Edinburgh game.
“In my time away I’ve been keeping track of the games on TV and see Allianz Park now is just unbelievable. I'm really excited after that training session and hopefully I will get the chance to play here soon.”
