Who will come out on top in this repeat of last year’s Premiership final?
Saracens v Exeter live stream: How to watch the Premiership match online from anywhere
This may be a repeat of last year’s Gallagher Premiership final but the teams look very different to those that lined up at Twickenham on 1 June 2019.
In fact, there are only three players across both squads who were involved in that final – Don Armand and Dave Dennis in the Exeter line-up and Tom Woolstencroft of Saracens.
Both coaching teams have clearly had next weekend’s European Champions Cup quarter-finals in mind when looking at selection for this afternoon’s match (kick-off 4.30pm).
With a play-off place already assured and just one more point from three matches needed to guarantee a home semi-final, Exeter are fielding a youthful side at Allianz Park.
Alfie Petch, Facundo Cordero, Tom Wyatt, Joe Snow and Harvey Skinner make their first Premiership starts and are complemented by the experience of captain Armand and full-back Phil Dollman.
Janco Venter and Harry Sloan make their first starts for Saracens, who have been defeated in their last two league matches but haven’t lost three in a row since 2017.
Saracens: Will Hooley; Rotimi Segun, Dom Morris, Harry Sloan, Elliott Obatoyinbo; Manu Vunipola, Tom Whiteley; Sam Crean, Kapeli Pifeleti, Alec Clarey, Joel Kpoku, Callum Hunter-Hill, Calum Clark (captain), Sean Reffell, Janco Venter.
Replacements: Tom Woolstencroft, Robin Hislop, Josh Ibuanokpe, Cameron Boon, Andy Christie, Alex Day, Juan Pablo Socino, Josh Hallett.
Exeter: Phil Dollman; Josh Hodge, Corey Baldwin, Tom Wyatt, Facundo Cordero; Harvey Skinner, Joe Snow; Billy Keast, Jack Innard, Alfie Petch, Will Witty, Tom Price, Sean Lonsdale, Richard Capstick, Don Armand (captain).
Replacements: Jordon Poole, James Kenny, Matt Johnson, Dave Dennis, Aaron Hinkley, Will Yarnell, Jack Walsh, Luke Mehson.
