    Yes, it again highlights the South African-ness of Saracens. Yes, it is certainly a marketing scheme.

    However, I like positive marketing schemes. Having touring sides play local club teams is a great tradition that has been almost totally lost in the professional era. Obviously it's not practical for it to take place all the time, but one-offs like the Munster vs All Blacks game last year, or this one, are exciting events.

    Also, it's nice we're beginning to market ourselves well. The Northampton game was a huge success, and if we can bring rugby to a new audience and garner more support then everyone's a winner.

    Steyn vs Hougaard should be a nice little battle to see.Will be the 1st time that they would play against each other in a match after being team mates at the Bulls.
