It should be an enthralling afternoon at Sandy Park as Saracens aim to move with touching distance of achieving their historic ‘double double’ dream and Exeter bid to keep their hopes of a first-ever league crown alive.

Mark McCall’s men have spent the week on cloud nine after retaining the European Rugby Champions Cup with a hard-fought 28-17 win over Clermont Auvergne last Saturday.

Their target now is to emulate Leicester Tigers’ exploits in 2001 and 2002 by successfully defending their Aviva Premiership title as well, but the semi-final trip to Devon presents a formidable obstacle.

Exeter finished the regular season with eight maximum-point victories and secured home advantage for this clash on the final day as they beat Gloucester and Saracens lost at Wasps.

The Chiefs, who finished level on points with Wasps and were only denied top spot on total wins, will have revenge on their minds after suffering a 28-20 defeat to Saracens in last year’s final.

An impressive home record – just two defeats all season and none since October – has been the bedrock of their latest impressive league campaign under the shrewd guidance of head coach Rob Baxter.

Saracens, though, can draw strength from their 34-13 win at Sandy Park in September - the fifth in their last seven visits to the south coast - and the fact that they are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Exeter in all competitions.

Once last weekend’s celebrations died down, McCall may have spent some time mulling his side’s overall form on the road, having lost three of their last five Aviva Premiership away games (at Wasps, Gloucester and Worcester).

However, if the last two seasons have proved anything, it’s that Saracens are at their most effective with the scent of the club game’s biggest prizes firmly in their nostrils.

Knock-out rugby, put simply, is their domain.

The Chiefs, then, will surely need to be at their free-flowing best to unseat them.
