Saracens to play in UAE and Hong Kong

Saracens have arranged to play non-competitive games in the United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong.

The Premiership champions will face Fijian champions Nadroga Stallions in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi on Friday, 9 March.

Sarries have also lined up a fixture against an Asia Pacific Barbarians team - who will feature former New Zealand international Mils Muliaina - in Hong Kong on Saturday, 9 June.

Chairman Nigel Wray said: "This is a hugely exciting opportunity."

He added: "Saracens is a club based in north London since 1876, but we are eager to take our squad, with their incredible work ethic, to all corners of the rugby world."

Saracens previously made headlines for announcing a game abroad when they revealed plans to play their Heineken Cup match against Biarritz in Cape Town, but ended up moving the fixture to London because of a row in South Africa over who would host the game.
