Sarries announce Abu Dhabi fixture

Saracens have arranged a friendly with Fijian champions Nadroga Stallions in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi on Friday, March 9.

The English champions will take advantage of a weekend free of domestic commitments to continue their efforts to promote the club abroad.

Saracens were forced to abandon plans to play their Heineken Cup tie with Biarritz in Cape Town in January after being caught up in a local dispute over the location of the game.

Chairman Nigel Wray said: "This is a hugely exciting opportunity for the club. We are looking forward to a tough match against a team packed with Fijian internationals and to experiencing the fantastic facilities created at the Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting and Golf Club."
