Saracens RFC boys were treated to an away trip they'll never forget last weekend!
The team of 11 boys, who have autism, were taken to watch the 2016 Aviva Premiership champions play Wasps, courtesy of the club's Sport Foundation.
But before watching their heroes play, the Sarries boys took on their Wasps counterparts, who also have high functioning disabilities such as autism, Down's Syndrome and ADHD.
They were then treated to a thrilling match at the Ricoh Arena and given the opportunity to meet players such as England international George Kruis.
Tomas Gamage of the Saracens Sport Foundation said: "The trip has been truly fantastic, the tour has allowed us to challenge our members in so many ways that contribute to their progress.
"Seeing the development physically and socially and to display those skills in an unusual environment was astonishing to see, the whole team has made the Saracens Family very proud."
Paul Tanner of Alan Day VW, who sponsor the Sarries programme, added: "It was an amazing opportunity to round off the season by taking the boys on the road and arranging a match.
"The past 12 months have been a total success and I'm proud of the progression our members have made both on and off the pitch."
Saracens were awarded the Premiership Rugby BreakThru Award in a glittering ceremony at the House of Commons last year for their work with disabled youngsters in the community.
