Saracens Amateur Under-8s to play for the chance to play at Twickenham's London Double Header
9:00am Thursday 5th September 2013 in Sport
Sarries youngsters will be hoping to follow in the footsteps of their Premiership heroes on Saturday as the Saracens Amateur Under-8s play for the chance to show off their skills on the Twickenham turf at the London Double Header.
The young Men in Black team are taking part in the London Double Header Development Festival at Richmond College in the morning with some teams then selected to play tag rugby during half-time at both Premiership matches in the afternoon.
Saracens prop Richard Barrington spent some time with the Under-8s team on Sunday, giving out coaching tips and shirts to the youngsters before the big day this weekend.
Team manager Nara Cravanzola said: "The players are very much excited about next week's London Double Header Development Festival of Rugby and having Saracens' professional player Richard Barrington come down to help us with our preparation for the festival was brilliant.
"This has given them a real buzz for the season ahead and if they get a chance to showcase their skills next week on the hallowed turf of Twickenham I couldn't imagine a better start to the season for them."
The London Double Header in association with Heathrow Express returns to Twickenham on 7 September with two crucial Aviva Premiership Rugby matches: London Irish v Saracens followed by London Wasps v Harlequins. Tickets from ticketmaster.co.uk
