• WP to tackle Saracens

    Western Province have agreed to play a one-off game against Saracens at Allianz Park on 9 November.

    Saracens on Monday confirmed that they will tackle the Bulls on 31 January 2015 and on Tuesday the north London club said it would also play host to WP after the Currie Cup.

    The 2013-14 Premiership and European Cup finalists defeated the Sharks earlier this year, and will be aiming to maintain their 100% record against top South African opposition.

    Gert Smal, Western Province director of rugby, believes it's a match that will benefit the Cape side.

    'To play Saracens in London will be a great experience for our players and coaches and, while some of our players will be involved in the Springbok tour to Europe [at that point], we will field our strongest possible team at Allianz Park.'
