Finally, KL Saracens 1st XV and Academy teams visited Padang Alamanda to take on the might of 2018 Malaysia Premier League runners-up ASAS Rugby and their development team, ASAS Fighters, respectively, as part of a challenging pre-season schedule for the Saracens teams. Both KLS team performed extremely well against very impressive opposition and took some valuable lessons with which to continue to build towards the regular season, with final scores of ASAS Rugby 17-7 KL Saracens and ASAS Fighters 25-5 KL Saracens Academy.
Well done to all KLS sides that played this weekend, and thanks to all of our opposition and hosts for their ongoing rugby brotherhood.
