Saracens will play Harlequins at StoneX on Saturday 13th November at 14:30, and here’s five reasons why we’d recommend attending this weekend.
Who doesn't love a London derby?
Saracens are currently second in the Gallagher premiership rugby table, excitingly they also share that spot with fellow Londoner’s Harlequins. Both Quins and Sarries have had a solid start to the 21/22 premiership season. Saracens have won their last six out of seven games, the seventh being an entertaining draw with London Irish. This London derby is set to be a nail biter, with only one try being the deciding factor in Sarries win over Quins at Twickenham Stoop in October. Previously the two teams have had a mixed history with the result going both ways, and always a close match up with the score line never being much over 7-points either way. This meeting for the first round in the Premiership Rugby Cup draw will not be any different.
Feel the effect of the atmosphere at the StoneX Stadium.
There is nothing quite like wrapping up, popping on a hat and scarf and heading off to experience the magic of a rugby match at the StoneX, under the lights on dusking November weekend. The atmosphere at this club is really quite special, with thousands of avid passionate fans who turn up come rain or shine for the highs and lows of rugby at Sarries. StoneX is one of the smaller grounds within the premiership teams, advantageous if you are looking for a busy, intimate ambience not to be missed!

StoneX is accessible by many forms of transport, with the nearest train station just a five minute taxi away, the nearest bus station a five minute walk away and the nearest motorway junction just 500 metre’s away!
