Bumper crowd expected for Saracens’ trip to Wembley Stadium

By Dominique Stafford in Rugby

A CROWD of more than 70,000 is expected to be in attendance at Wembley Stadium tomorrow afternoon when Saracens host Harlequins in the Aviva Premiership (4.30pm).

The match will be Sarries’ tenth in total at the iconic venue, and sixth against Harlequins and is an even which has become very much an integral part of the domestic rugby calendar.

A host of pre-match entertainment will also be on offer prior to the kick-off, including a performance from 2015 X Factor winner Louisa Johnson.

Victory for Saracens will guarantee their place in the end of season play-offs with three games to spare if Bath fail to beat Leicester, and skipper Brad Barritt is looking forward to the match.

“I think it’s fantastic for the players to play at Wembley,” he said. “Obviously it’s a change of scenery and to play at an iconic stadium against a London rival is fantastic for every player. It’s something we all look forward to.”
