Global Network Preview
With four Saracens Global Network clubs in competitive action, can we have a third unbeaten weekend on the trot? Take a look at everything happening across the globe:
Abu Dhabi Saracens
It’s a top of the table clash in the Gulf Top Six today. Abu Dhabi Saracens host Doha at the Al-Ghazal Golf Club. Both teams are unbeaten and a solitary point separates the two sides; something has to give. The spotlight will be on former Saracens academy player Elliot Reeder after his man of the match performance against the Dubai Hurricanes last week.
Impala Saracens, Nairobi
Impala Saracens have recaptured their form and will feel confident of making it a third win on the trot, as they travel to Jamhuri Park to take on 12th placed Mean Machine RFC in the Kenya Cup. A big win could see them move into 5th place.
Kuala Lumpur Saracens
KL Saracens continued their pre-season training at the weekend. They begin their KRS Liga campaign next weekend.
Lelo Saracens, Tbilisi
Lelo Saracens are back in action in the Georgian Premier Division this weekend. They travel to fourth placed Kharebi Rustavi. A win would see Lelo Saracens move into second place outright.
Moscow Saracens are in pre-season preparing for the beginning of the Russian Professional Rugby League.
Sao Paulo Saracens
Sao Paulo Saracens are in pre-season and are adjusting well to their new Head Coach Jacob Mangin. The Brazilian sevens season kicks off in February.
Seattle Saracens travel to Castaway Wanderers this weekend, as they prepare to defend their 2014 unbeaten record. Seattle Saracens will be without the services of six of their finest players, as John Cullen, Olive Kilifi, Louis Stanfill, Phil Thiel, Matt Trouville and Ben Landry have been called to a USA Rugby training camp.
Timisoara Saracens begin their pre-season in February, with the SuperLiga Championship kicking off in April. Timisoara Saracens lock forward Valentin Poparlan will represent Saracens against the Blue Bulls at Allianz Park on Saturday. He will become the second player from the Saracens Global Network to represent Saracens after Catalin Fercu.
Toa Saracens are in pre-season, preparing for the Tongan Premier Division.
