McCall predicting 'fantastic occasion'

Mark McCall is predicting Sunday’s clash against Western Province will be a “fantastic occasion”, as Saracens take on the South African side in The Sanlam Challenge at Allianz Park this Sunday, 13h00.

Saracens, who beat South African opposition earlier this season when the faced the Sharks at Allianz Park in January, face the Cape team who have recently won the Currie Cup for a second time in three years.

Speaking about Sunday's game, the Saracens Director of Rugby, said: “It’s going to be another fantastic occasion. These matches fill a massive gap in the global rugby calendar because northern hemisphere clubs so rarely get the chance to play against the top provincial sides from the southern hemisphere. Our players really enjoyed playing against the Sharks and are now really excited by the chance to play against the Currie Cup champions, and the nucleus of the Stormers team that has historically competed so strongly in the Super XV.”

He added; “It’s going to be a true clash of styles and hemispheres.”
