TVCamera-Sky-1203

The LV= Cup Semi-finals are an all-Premiership Rugby affair for the third year in a row and they are both live on Sky Sports 3, with the highlights on ITV4 at 8pm on Sunday.

Saturday sees Saracens at home to 2010 winners Northampton Saints kicking off at 12.30pm.

The game is a repeat of last year's LV= Cup semi-final when Saints came out on top 26 – 7.

Saracens are bidding to make it to the final for the first time having fallen at the semi-final stage on four previous occasions. Northampton have a proud record in the competition having been beaten finalists in 2012 and 2014 as well as lifting the trophy in 2010.

Sunday’s game features two-time winners Leicester Tigers against reigning champions Exeter Chiefs. The game kicks off at 1pm.

Leicester Tigers qualified for the last four of the LV= Cup as top seeds with 18 points from four straight wins compared to Exeter's record of 13 points from three wins and a defeat. The sides have only met once before in this competition, Chiefs winning 35-10 on 29 January 2011.

Be part of the rugby family at the LV= Cup Final at Franklin's Gardens, Northampton on Sunday 22 March. Visit www.northamptonsaints.co.uk for tickets.
