Saracens have named a powerful 23-man squad for the historic north-south clash against Cell C Sharks at Allianz Park on Saturday 25 January, 2014.
Mark McCall, Director of Rugby, said: “The Cell C Sharks are one of the strongest teams in the Super XV, and we’re really looking forward to the challenge. Our match against the Springboks four years ago was one of the greatest occasions in the club’s history, and this will be a similar kind of one-off event… the Premiership leaders against South Africa’s Currie Cup champions. We will field our strongest possible side.”
