A disability touch rugby side from Saracens will face their counterparts from Worcester ahead of the final Aviva Premership game of the season.

Sarrie’s RFC is a programme delivered by the Saracens Sport Foundation who aim to increase and sustain regular physical activity for young people with high functioning disabilities.

The Club was formed two years ago and the programme has gone from strength-to-strength.

Sarrie’s RFC is dedicated to improving not only physical aspects of the members but also their social skills, which many young people with disabilities such as autism and ADHD struggle with.

Thanks to support from Alan Day Volkswagen the club will head out “on tour” to Worcester’s Sixways Stadium tomorrow (Saturday). Tomas Gamage of Saracens Sports Foundation said: “It has been another fantastic season for Sarrie’s RFC. Our members have developed so much both on and off the pitch and this of course is not possible without the support of Paul and the rest of the Alan Day team.”
