Cape Town - Western Province will field their strongest possible team when they tackle English club Saracens in London next month.

After the completion of this year's Currie Cup, the Cape side will set their sights on a clash with Saracens at Allianz Park on Sunday, November 9.

WP will be looking to become the first South African side to beat Saracens in London and will therefore not be fielding a second string outfit.

The Sharks came unstuck 23-15 when they faced Saracens there in January this year.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity for our players and we will certainly be fielding our strongest available team,” Rob Wagner, WP's chief executive told Saracens' official website.

“Everybody in South African rugby has been following Saracens’ success in the last few seasons, and everybody saw the Sharks get beaten at Allianz Park earlier this year. It will be a great occasion, and we can’t wait.”
