SARACENS are lining up a lucrative clash with World Cup holders South Africa at either Stamford Bridge or Craven Cottage on 2 December. The Springboks were not due to play in England as their autumn tour takes in matches against France, Italy and Ireland but they have agreed to stop off in London before heading back home. Sarries are playing Northampton at Wembley on 12 September, but the national stadium is not available. Sarries are hoping to increase their supporter base among the 750,000- strong London South African community. Coach Brendan Venter added Derrick Hougaard, the former Springbok outside half, to his playing staff yesterday.

Saracens open new Boks of tricks Live on BBC2, from 6pm Wiggins goes fourth and Armstrong leaves Astana BRADLEY WIGGINS gave himself a fighting chance of a podium finish in the Tour de France by coming home sixth in the individual time trial yesterday, but there looks to be no stopping Alberto Contador on his charge to a second title. Wiggins (right) climbed two places to fourth and narrowed the gap to 11sec behind seven-times winner Lance Armstrong, who is now third. But it was Contador who wore the broadest grin after the Spaniard won yesterdays stage by three seconds from Switzerlands Fabian Cancellara to strengthen his grip on the yellow jersey. The 2007 champion is 4min 11sec and said: Winning a time trial is really special -- and I beat all the specialists. We are near the end but I must be careful. Armstrong, 37, will quit Astana, the team he shares with Contador, and form a US- based team in 2010 in partnership with RadioShack Corporation. A statement said: Lance Armstrong will compete for Team RadioShack as a cyclist, runner and triathlete in events around the world, including the 2010 Tour de France.
