Saracens-'The Men in Pink'
This picture was taken at the Saracen's home ground at Vicarage Road Stadium in Watford playing against the London Wasps for a place in the Guinness Premiership on 20/4/2008. The London Wasps included England players such as Lawrence Dallaglio, Josh Lewsey, Paul Sackey and the young star of the England side - Danny Cipriani. To support the Breast Care Foundation, Saracens (known as the 'Men in Black') for one day became 'The Men in Pink' as they swapped their usual black and red strip for a lovely feminine pink colour! Pink certainly seemed to be the colour to be wearing on this day and some of the fans also joined in by wearing pink ribbons. Over £5000 was collected on match day for this worthy cause and we were also treated to a fast paced Rugby match in which a total of 11 tries were scored.
Further details of this game and many pictures of this and other games can be found in the Rugby Union section of Martle's Place.
