Allianz Park is making waves for all the right reasons with the introduction of the Saracens contactless wristband.

With 1 in 10 transactions in the UK being made on contactless payment methods, there really is no better time to embrace this technology. The Saracens wristband contains a miniature chip which works in the same way your contactless card does but with the added benefit that it's worn on the wrist so you are ready for fast and convenient payments of up to £30 at any time.

There is a dedicated website where you can register your wristband, load funds from any MasterCard or Visa credit or debit card and even set auto top-up so that you’re never without funds.

 Allianz Park is now contactless throughout so with just the tap of your wrist you can purchase pre-match refreshments and merchandise as well use your wearable for travel on the Transport for London network and at retailers across the UK everywhere the contactless symbol is displayed.

Wristbands are available free of charge and can be collected from the supporter’s shop at Allianz Park.

Saracens Academy pipped at the post away to London Irish

A spirited Saracens Academy side were defeated by Southern Conference leaders London Irish at Hazlewood over the weekend, with the Exiles edging Sarries 27-24.

The defending Premiership Academy champions ran the in-form Exiles close in a contest high in quality and drama, with Irish kicking a late penalty to snatch the win.

Three tries, one from the impressive loose forward Ben Earl and one-a-piece from lock forward Joel Kpoku and playmaker Tom Ffitch.

Speaking after his side’s loss, Academy Manager Don Barrell praised Saracens’ spirit but was left to rue a few missed chances after the game.

“The team played well in the main,” said Barrell whose side now sits third in the Southern Conference after six games. “We had good energy and worked hard to pressure Irish across the board but we missed a few chances to take points and score in the match. We should have moved to a bigger margin, but in fairness to them they defended well.

“It was a great game of U18 rugby which both sides played in great spirit, and we can take a lot away from a disappointing result but a positive performance on the whole.”

Saracens ran into a 0-7 lead after Ben Earl’s score, only for the Exiles’ Matt Williams to dance through the Saracens defence to score to draw the game.

Sarries edged in front with a penalty goal but Irish hit back with their second try of the game.

Yet, Barrell’s side to their credit hit back with two tries of their own through Kpoku and Ffitch, but in a topsy-turvy contest an Exiles response was never too far away as two scores from the home side levelled things up at 24-all.

With the game in its dying embers, Irish were awarded a penalty, which they kicked to break Sarries hearts.

Du Plessis was superb, and I’m not sure how he wasn’t Man of the Match, as to scrummage that way against Marcos Ayerza takes some doing. I thought he was brilliant today." - See more at: http://www.saracens.com/news-article/mccall-hails-pack-performance-after-tigers-result#sthash.tZ9etc1v.dpuf
