There will be little love on Valentines Day at the Allianz Park when Saracens play host to Wasps. Whilst their loss against Harlequins at The Stoop ruined their perfect start to the season. Saracens are without the team to beat this season, their strong all round game will be too strong for many teams in the Aviva Premiership.
Despite a number of great results in the European Champions Cup, including a 36-6 over holders Toulon , Wasps have struggled to replicate that form in the Premiership where they have been inconsistent. Nevertheless on their day as Toulon found out, Wasps are more than a match for anyone.
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
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.
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.
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. Services are extremely regular, running approximately every 6/7 minutes from each of these stations and drop you a short walk from the stadium on Pursley Road. Pioneers will be present to help you find the buses and direct you onward toward the stadium.
Specific details on timings and pick up points will be published every Wednesday of a home match week on the Saracens website.
