Rugby Union : Saracens v Gloucester at the Allianz Park – 20th February 2016

quins sarac

High flying Saracens play host to Gloucester at the Allianz Park. Whilst their loss against Harlequins at The Stoop ruined their perfect start to the season. Saracens are dominating the Aviva Premiership this season, their strong all round game proving too much for many of the teams in the league.

This will be a hard match for Gloucester who have struggled all season so far. Their mid table position tells its own story with inconsistent displays in the Aviva Premiership and in Europe.

Established in 1876, Saracens Rugby Club are one of London’s premier rugby club competing in the Aviva Premiership, the European Champions Cup and the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

The Men in Black (as they are affectionately known)  enjoyed a record-breaking 2014/15 season in which the north Londoners won six domestic trophies, in the process securing a historic league and cup double.

Off the pitch, the club moved to purpose-built stadium called the Allianz Park in Barnet in 2013.

Getting to the stadium

By Train

Mill Hill Broadway, on the Thameslink, is a 5 minute taxi journey from Allianz Park and only 10 minutes from Kings Cross St Pancras or 20 minutes from Farringdon.

By Car

Allianz Park is just 400 metres from Junction 2 of the M1, 12 minutes inside the M25 and right next to the North Circular. Allianz Park offers 800 guest parking spaces and access to a road network to take you anywhere in the country.

Mill Hill East tube station on the Northern Line, provides an alternative and is a 7 minute taxi journey to Allianz Park.

Saracens Shuttle

On home match days Saracens run a free shuttle buses from Mill Hill East and Edgware London Underground stations as well as Mill Hill Broadway National Rail station.
