Saracens v Harlequins live stream: How to watch the Gallagher Premiership semi-final
The 2021-22 Gallagher Premiership semi-finals involve two local rivalries, starting with the London derby between Saracens and Harlequins at StoneX Stadium.
Saturday’s opening fixture kicks off at 1.30pm (UK & Ireland time), with defending champions Quins taking on Saracens, who won the title five times between 2011 and 2019.
Sarries have won both league fixtures between the sides this season – 29-22 at the Stoop in late October and 19-10 at the StoneX in February.
This will be the first time in this campaign, though, that the clubs’ England internationals are involved given the previous matches fell during international periods.
There are three Premiership Player of the Year nominees involved in this match, with Danny Care and Andre Esterhuizen lining up for Quins and award winner Ben Earl in the back row for Sarries.
Quins’ Louis Lynagh is injured but Cadan Murley is fit, Tyrone Green shifts to the wing and Huw Jones comes in at full-back.
Saracens have named an all-international XV, with Maro Itoje set to make his 150th appearance for the club.
