Saracens have confirmed that their friendly fixture against Cell C Sharks has been cancelled.

The game was set to be played on 15th January at StoneX Stadium in North London but now has been called off due to 'uncertainty around international travel' due to concerns over the new variant of Covid-19.

"It is with regret that we can confirm that the match between Saracens and Cell C Sharks on 15th January 2022 has been cancelled," read a statement from Saracens.

"With recent developments regarding the new variant of COVID-19, the uncertainty around international travel that lies ahead and the timeframes in which we are operating in, both teams have made the decision in the best interest of safety for all concerned.

"Saracens and the Cell C Sharks share a commitment to grow the game and make a significant contribution to their respective communities, so will continue to communicate, share knowledge and look for opportunities to reschedule the game and work together in the future."
