Saturday sees a double header of live Aviva Premiership Rugby action on BT Sport 1.  Coverage starts at 1pm with Saracens v London Irish first up.
 
The last four contests between the two clubs have been evenly split with two wins apiece, with London Irish being one of only two teams ever to have beaten Saracens at Allianz Park – the other being Northampton Saints, twice.
 
Exeter Chiefs welcome west country rivals Gloucester for the second half of Saturday’s double bill.
 
Exeter Chiefs have slipped to back-to-back defeats at Sale and at Bath, but have not lost three in a row in Aviva Premiership Rugby since February. Gloucester have won three of their last four away games in all competitions.
