The Saracens Senior & U.21 squad tour to The Hague, Holland, concluded successfully this weekend.
We enjoyed excellent weather, truly great hospitality from our hosts Hague Rugby Club, fantastic team spirit and the highlight of watching the Saracens U.21 squad's convincing victory over The Netherlands National U.19 team.

The Saracens Senior Squad lost to hosts Hague Rugby Club and to Dutch Premiership champions Dukes RFC over the weekend. However, the weekend's matches allowed a number of new players to make their debuts, and was an extremely valuable opportunity for many of the seniors & U.21s to play together in the same team - an exercise which will provide Saracens with genuine long-term benefits
"I want to thank the entire touring party for their great company, commitment and assistance throughout the weekend" said Colin Veitch, Director of Rugby "Our hosts at Hague Rugby Club offered us an outstanding welcome again and their hospitality was much appreciated. My thanks on behalf of all of us at Saracens RFC"
