Hodgson can’t wait for Sharks clash

Charlie Hodgson has been playing professional rugby for 14 seasons, but the fly-half has had to wait until now to test himself against a top South African provincial team.

Saracens play The Sharks at Allianz Park on Saturday 25 January, kick-off 14h30, for the Sanlam Private Investments Shield.

Hodgson said: “It might seem unusual to be playing a match like this in the middle of our season, but Saracens is a club that constantly challenges conventions, and there is a real buzz around the training ground. The Sharks are one of the top teams in the Super XV, and we’ll have to be at our best to compete with a side including 12 Springboks.

“I’ve never had the opportunity to play against any Super Rugby team, so it will be a new experience – it’s a one-off event.”
