Saracens - #ThrowbackThursday with Alex Buga

May 24, 2018

#ThrowbackThursday with Alex Buga


Alex Buga is one of our disABILITY participants who is a member of Sarrie’s RFC, our disABILITY Rugby Club.

Alex is 19  years old, has Downs Syndrome and has a keen interest for rugby and media.

During our recent Foundation Match Day, Alex teamed up with Jim Hamilton holding Q&A sessions in our hospitality lounges. Alex discussed his personal goals and achievements in rugby alongside his own thoughts on the current team and this season and also talked to the fans about what the Saracens Sport Foundation do to help change lives within the local community.

Alex also had a chance to visit a few of our box holders to have a discussion with them about how the Foundation has impacted his life and his ambitions for the future. This sparked some great conversations and Alex really enjoyed the opportunity to talk about his life and what the Saracens Sport Foundation and Rugby mean to him.

We want to thank Alex for his enthusiasm and energy throughout the day and congratulate him for his effortless delivery of his speeches.’
