What's on at Allianz Park this Weekend v Newcastle
Saracens take on Newcastle in the second round of the Anglo-Welsh Cup this Saturday at Allianz Park. Here's your guide to what's on at Allianz Park and how we'll be marking Remembrance Day.
U20s World Cup on display
The Anglo-Welsh Cup is all about unearthing the next generation of rugby talent and many of those taking to the field today have represented their countries at age group level. Last summer England became U20s World champions as they defeated Ireland in the final in Manchester with Saracens' Matt Gallagher and Max Malins lining up in the starting XV.
Following the conclusion of the Saracens fixture England v South Africa will be screened around the ground allowing spectators to stay on and watch the game. Food and drink concessions will remain open and the Saracens shuttle bus will run until 17H00.
This weekend Saracens will be coming together to remember those who have lost their lives fighting for their country as we mark Remembrance Day. A minutes silence will be held before kick off and the Royal British Legion will be at the gates selling poppies to supporters.
The Saracens shop will also be stocking a special Poppy Ball, with the proceeds going to the Royal British Legion. If you can't make it to the game you can also purchase your poppy ball here.
We will be joined on Saturday by members of the 7th Parachute Regiment Royal Horse Artillery who will be making up the guard of honour and who will also be displaying a decommissioned gun on the piazza.
This weekend also sees a special feature in the match day programme from the Saracens World War I project. The project is run by a group of supporters who are researching the lives of those Saracens who fought during WWI. To find out more about the project, or get involved, visit www.saracensrugbyww1.com.
