MARK MCCALL SARACENS DIRECTOR OF RUGBY

Mark McCall: Thrilled to face WP

Saracens will host Currie Cup outfit Western Province in a friendly match at Allianz Park on Sunday November 9.

The 2014 Premiership league winners defeated the Sharks earlier this year, and will be aiming to maintain their 100% record against top South African opposition.

Sarries boss Mark McCall said: "Western Province have long been one of the leading teams in the southern hemisphere, and it will be a great thrill for our players and supporters to welcome the Cape team to Allianz Park."

Gert Smal, Western Province's director of rugby, said: "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, we will field our strongest possible team at Allianz Park."
