Saracens opt for Wembley switch

Wembley Stadium
Wembley hosts rugby league's Challenge Cup final every year

Saracens have moved their second Premiership match of the season against Northampton Saints to Wembley Stadium on Saturday, 12 September.

Sarries' Vicarage Road home in Watford holds 19,900, while England's football stadium has a capacity of 90,000.

"It really is a fantastic experience," said club owner Nigel Wray.

The world record attendance for a club rugby union match is 82,208 at Croke Park in last year's Heineken Cup semi-final between Leinster and Munster.
