Sarries to take on Blue Bulls

PREMIERSHIP runners-up Saracens will take on South African side the Blue Bulls in a mid-season friendly at Allianz Park on 31 January 2015.

The two-time Super 14 champions are set to field a full strength team in a fixture that follows last season’s visit of Durban club Natal Sharks.

Sarries director of rugby Mark McCall said: “Matches against top southern hemisphere opposition are becoming part of our annual calendar. We look forward to another fantastic occasion.”
