Exeter Chiefs vs Saracens

Rugby Fan’s Welcome To Watch Aviva Premiership Final – Exeter Chiefs vs Saracens rugby: TV channel, live stream, kick-off time and team news.Saracens have made their fourth Premiership final in five years after beating Wasps.

Their semi-final game was a record-breaking one in a number of ways with Owen Farrell kicking 27 points, Chris Wyles scored a fifth semi-final try in eight years and there was a total of 11 tries and 90 combined points – all setting records.

What time is kick-off?

THIS match takes place on Saturday, May 26. 

It will be held at Twickenham.

Kick-off is at 3pm.

Saturday’s Premiership final between Exeter Chiefs and Saracens should be a more-than mouth-watering encounter.Defending champions Exeter are in a third final in as many years, while Saracens will be desperate to reclaim the title they won against Chiefs in 2016.

Having watched Saracens’ semi-final victory against Wasps on Saturday, at times they appeared to take their opponents apart at will.Mark McCall’s side really lowered their error count, upped their execution and ran really hard into areas where they could exploit a weakness.

The first 20 to 25 minutes was pretty much error-free. They looked like the side who were pretty much unbeatable when they won the domestic and European double in 2016.

Ominously, they have played themselves into the most magnificent form that creates an expectation they will repeat that semi-final performance against Wasps.

But Racing have also had to reach the final the hard way, having knocked out Top 14 rivals Clermont Auvergne in the quarter-finals in one of the major shocks of the tournament, before a destructive first 20 minutes against Munster gave them an unassailable lead to reach the final. With Dan Carter, the former All Black, also set to leave the club this summer to head to Japan, Racing have the potential to give the ex-World Rugby Player of the Year the perfect send-off.

With the San Mames Stadium, home of Spanish football side Athletic Bilbao, set to hold the game, the final represents European Premier Club Rugby’s first foray into Spain in what could be one of the most picturesque finals to have taken place in the tournament’s 22-year history.

Richard Cockerill believes Edinburgh can sink Munster late on if they can stay with the Irish side for the first hour of their Pro14 play-off tie.The Scottish side are appearing in the end-of-season play-offs for the first time, and go into the quarter-final in Limerick as big underdogs.

But head coach Cockerill believes his men can turn the famous Thomond Park atmosphere against the hosts.A place in the semi-finals and a date with Leinster at the RDS Arena on May 19 awaits the winner of this intriguing clash.

These are uncharted waters for Edinburgh but they have good reason to be bullish having secured a Conference-leading 15 victories this season including wins against all four Irish provinces.

The last time these two sides met, Edinburgh edged out their Irish rivals 12-6 in a scrappy contest at Murrayfield.They were victorious despite being reduced to 14 men during the second half when Jason Harries was yellow carded for a dangerous tackle.

the Reds line-up this week, due to injuries and rotations. Samu Kerevi continues to keep his 12 jersey, which is a very good thing for him, the Reds and Australian Rugby in my opinion.The Waratahs have not won four games in a row since 2016. Looking at their next few rounds, they may extend this to a tally of six with home games against the Lions then the Blues. While their attacking approach and pattern is not as dynamic as New Zealand teams – it works!

Munster, despite van Graan only coming on board last November, are a more advanced side for their 13th semi-final than they were when coming decidedly second best to Saracens at this stage last season.Somehow their leadership group has gelled with the incoming boss and the outcome has been a series of performances that stirred memories of the good old days that delivered two Heineken Cups.

Former New Zealand fly-half Dan Carter only makes the bench for Racing 92, with Springbok Pat Lambie at 10 for Sunday’s semi-final against Munster.

Leinster welcome Scarlets to the Aviva this afternoon looking to get one step closer to their fourth European title.Leinster also won more try bonus-points than every team except from Conference A winners Glasgow.”We are away from home in Europe so we are going to have to defend very well,” said Barclay.”They’ve got a lot of bonus point wins in the league so their attacking prowess is pretty impressive, but defensively we’ve been good all year.However, both those games were at home and if they hadn’t beaten both Leinster and Munster in Dublin last season more emphasis would have been placed on the travelling issue.

Leinster’s average of 3.6 tries per game is the highest of any of the four remaining teams and they have the best disciplinary record of all, conceding just 7.6 penalties per match.Of the seven times they have met the Scarlets in Europe, they’ve won five.You can’t read anything into their recent Pro14 meetings which came in the middle of the Six Nations but Leinster won at home (20-13) and a 10-10 draw in Wales.This will be the home side’s tenth semi-final appearance, while the Scarlets have been in three, each time failing to progress.
