South African franchise the Sharks will play Saracens on January 25 at Allianz Park in a special one-off match.'Our players will enjoy the challenge presented by a full-strength Sharks team, packed with Springboks like Bismarck du Plessis and Frans Steyn, and it's sure to be a fantastic rugby occasion at Allianz Park,' said Mark McCall, Saracens' director of rugby.
Sharks chief executive John Smit said the match would be a good pre-season run out. "It will be a wonderful experience for our players to travel to London and play at Allianz Park. The match is a crucial part of our preparations for the new Super Rugby season and it will also be the first match in charge for our new coach, Jake White."
The game has been approved by the South Africa board and will be discussed by the RFU at a meeting next week.
