Cape Town - Former Western Province scrumhalf Neil de Kock is relishing the prospect of facing his former side in London next month.

READ: Strong WP to face Saracens

De Kock, 35, spent six-and-a-half successful seasons at Western Province, and the experienced Saracens halfback is looking forward to facing the reigning Currie Cup champions at Allianz Park on Sunday, November 9, in the Sanlam Private Investments Challenge.

“It’s exciting to be playing against the South African sides once again,” De Kock, who was capped 10 times by the Springboks, told the WP Rugby website.

“Personally, I think it’s a wonderful fixture, as I haven’t played in South Africa for eight or nine years, so it will be a great challenge.

“I had six-and-a-half brilliant years at Western Province, it’s a place that is very close to my heart. Hopefully, we will be able to give them a good test and a good run at Allianz Park. Last year’s game against the Sharks was a great occasion," said De Kock, referring to Saracens' 23-15 win over the Sharks.
