Saracens making a splash

Saracens rugby union players took part in some unusual training at the Aquatics Facility at the National Sports Centre this week.

The Aviva Premiership stars, who play USA Islanders in a pre-season friendly at North Field tonight, practised their passing while jumping off swimming pool diving boards.

The European champions are enjoying a warm weather camp on the island as they continue their preparations for the new season.

The match, which is $20 admission and free for children, kicks off at 7pm, while a collegiate all-star game between the Liberty Conference and the Republic of Texas will be held at 5.30pm. Proceeds will be donated to the Bermuda Beyond Rugby charity.
