New Orleans clash cancelled
Saracens can confirm that the club's Hemisphere's Cup match against the Crusaders Knights has been cancelled.
The clash between the Premiership Champions and the New Zealanders was scheduled to be played at the New Orleans Superdome on August 1st has now been shelved after the organisers of the match, RugbyLaw, informed the clubs that the game would not go ahead.
“We are disappointed that the Hemisphere’s Cup clash has been cancelled, it would have been a great showcase event and opportunity to help grow rugby on a global scale,” said Saracens chief operating officer Stefan Crouse.
“Unfortunately the decision is completely outside of our control and we will reluctantly have to accept it. We feel for any Saracens or Crusaders supporters who were planning to visit the game, plus the wider USA rugby public who were highly anticipating the clash.”
