Ex-Sarries student to play in Heineken Cup Final
Ex-Oaklands Saracens student, Jackson Wray will be taking to the field for Premiership giants Saracens at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff in front of 80,000 fans.
CARDIFF — Tomorrow evening at 5pm, ex-Saracens student Jackson Wray will be taking to the field for Premiership giants Saracens at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff in front of 80,000 fans.
The occasion is the Heineken Cup Final and Saracens will be facing last year’s winners Toulon from the south of France (packed with international superstars).
Jackson attended Oaklands from 2007-2009, studying the L3 BTEC in Sport.
After graduating from the college, with Distinctions across the board, Jackson was contracted to Saracens, where he has continue to develop into a classy back row player.
He has now over 80 times for England’s top club, but this weekend’s game looks to eclipse previous experiences in terms of importance and occasion.
Tomorrow’s game is the last time the Heineken Cup will be played before next year’s re-worked European competition; the Champions Cup, so a great opportunity to create history for the St Albans based club.
Good luck Jackson and the whole Saracens squad from everyone at Oaklands.
