LV= Cup Final Live on TV

Saracens and Exeter Chiefs head to Northampton for the battle for the first silverware of the year on Sunday and all of the action will be live on Sky Sports 4 kicking off at 3pm.

Previously, Saracens have made it to the semi-final stage four times but 2015 sees them through to the final for the first time after a semi-final victory over 2010 winners, Northampton Saints.
 
Exeter Chiefs made their way to the final with a 30-22 win away to top seeds Leicester Tigers when Greg Bateman crashed over to score the decisive try five minutes from time.

The win at Welford Road, only their second at Tigers home ground, keeps the Devon club's hopes of retaining the title alive.

Saracens and Exeter have already met in the pool stages of this season's competition, Saracens booking a home semi-final with a 35-18 win at Allianz Park in round 4. The only other time they have met in the LV= Cup was in the 2011-12 season, when Owen Farrell played a starring role with 28 of his side's points in a 43-20 win.

Saracens have not won a cup competition since beating Wasps in the final of the 1998 Tetley's Bitter Cup.

Be part of the rugby family at the LV= Cup Final on Sunday, 22 March at Franklin's Gardens. Tickets available via www.northamptonsaints.co.uk
