Saracens vs Toulouse game to go ahead
After consultation with our French friends Stade Toulousain and European Professional Club Rugby Saracens can confirm that today’s European Champions Cup game at Allianz Park will go ahead, kick-off 17h30.
Following the tragic events in Paris, Saracens send their sincerest condolences and support to anyone affected by the terrible events in Paris on Friday evening. Both sides will observe a minute’s silence before kick-off and will wear black armbands.
Saracens chief executive, Heath Harvey: “Like everyone else we were shocked and appalled by the events in Paris yesterday evening. Everyone at Saracens would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Parisians and the French public as a whole, as the country goes into three days of national mourning.
“We host one of France’s proudest rugby teams later today and I would like to take this opportunity to remind any French rugby fans who will be attending the game today that they will be welcomed with open arms at Allianz Park, and I’m sure our fantastic fans will make them feel at home.”
