Saracens have named a strong 23-man squad for the north-south clash against Cell C Sharks at Allianz Park on Saturday, January 25.

“The Cell C Sharks are one of the strongest teams in the Super XV, and we’re really looking forward to the challenge," director of rugby Mark McCall told the club website.

"Our match against the Springboks four years ago was one of the greatest occasions in the club’s history and this will be a similar kind of one-off event.

"The Premiership leaders against South Africa’s Currie Cup champions. We will field our strongest possible side.”
