THE FIRST HOME PREMIERSHIP RUGBY CUP GAME OF THE SEASON

  • The first home fixture for Saracens Men and the first outing of the new home kit!

Saracens have won 16 home matches against Sale since their last defeat in 2005.

Fans can get their first taste of men’s rugby at Allianz Park this season when Saracens welcome Sale Sharks to north London in the Premiership Rugby Cup.

A competition renowned for showcasing exciting talent, Sarries, under Senior Academy Coach Adam Powell’s guidance, reached the final in 2018/19 with 23 Academy products playing their part in the campaign.

Three of that tally in Tom Whiteley, Matt Gallagher and Joel Kpoku were nominated for the Premiership Rugby Cup Breakthrough Player Award for their contributions but there were a number who held there hand up and really impressed.

The Men in Black won both of their Premiership Rugby Cup matches last term, scoring nine tries and accumulating 63 points.
