Timisoara Saracens Ready For Challenge Cup Debut

Timisoara Saracens kick off their first ever European Challenge Cup campaign this weekend as they welcome Pro12 side Edinburgh to Romania. 

Currently sitting top of their domestic league, with five wins from six, Timisoara Saracens came through qualifying last season, defeating Italian side Calvisano over two legs in the final stage, to secure their place in the Challenge Cup.

The side are now looking forward to competing on the European stage and will be hoping to kick off their campaign in style in front of a home crowd on Saturday.
