Premiership Rugby Cup Final social media preview

Premiership Rugby Cup Final social media preview

Northampton Saints and Saracens will battle it out to pick up the first silverware of the season as they go head-to-head in the inaugural Premiership Rugby Cup final.

After seeing off Newcastle Falcons and Worcester Warriors respectively in the semi-finals in February, both teams will be hoping they can go all the way with a victory at a sold-out Franklin’s Gardens.

The hosts won the right to play the game at home by having won their pool earlier in the competition, while their opponents only qualified as best runners up in their group.

Saracens are still undefeated in the Premiership Rugby Cup and will want to keep up that proud record as they go into Sunday’s grandstand game.

The winners will be the first to lift the new Premiership Rugby Cup, with the competition replacing the Anglo-Welsh Cup for this season.
