Saracens name side for final preseason clash

Saracens have named their side to face French side Aurillac in tonight’s preseason friendly at the Stade Jean Alric, kick-off 19h00.

In the north Londoners final preseason hit-out before his side begin their Aviva Premiership title defence against Sale Sharks at Allianz Park on Saturday 17 October, Saracens have chosen a strong side to face the French Pro Division 2 leaders.

On his team’s fixture in France, director of rugby Mark McCall said: “Aurillac will provide us with a tough test on the eve of what promises to be an extremely competitive 2015/16 season. They are a well-coached side, and are currently topping the French second division – it will be a great opportunity for us to get some more game time under our belts heading into the new campaign.”
