SCRUM on down! The WHTimes has teamed up with top Hertfordshire club Saracens to offer rugby fans the chance to see London's leading four sides in action at Twickenham next month.

The countdown is underway for the start of the Guinness Premiership season and you can enjoy the big kick-off to the new campaign with our competition to win tickets for the London Double Header at Twickenham on Saturday, September 6.

The home of English rugby plays host to the traditional season opener when once again all four London teams battle it out in back-to-back matches.

Saracens will play Harlequins at 5pm after Wasps have taken on London Irish, which has a 2.30pm kick-off.

One ticket will gain you entry to both games - the perfect treat for supporters.

For Saracens, it is a chance for new director of rugby Eddie Jones to see his side in competitive action.

The Men in Black will field new signings, with England captain Steve Borthwick and Michael Owen making their full debuts for the club alongside some more familiar faces in the shape of Glen Jackson, New Zealand lock Chris Jack and Richard Haughton.

Sarries play their home games at Watford's football ground and the players train at the Hertfordshire Sports Village in Hatfield.

Harlequins can field the likes of England stars David Strettle, Danny Care and Nick Easter in their side, so it's going to be a tough start to the new campaign for Saracens.

The other match-up of the day sees players such as Topsy Ojo and Shane Geraghty in the Irish team, while Wasps will be able to field players like Paul Sackey, James Haskell and Frenchman Serge Betsen in their side.

Tickets for the matches are on sale now from www.ticketmaster.co.uk or by calling 0844 847 2492, with prices from £20 adults and £10 for children.

But you and your family can enjoy a great day out simply by entering our competition.

We've got a family ticket, which is for two adults and two children, up for grabs.

Remember to include your name, address and a daytime contact number.

The competition closes 1pm on Tuesday, September 2.
