Social Media Preview: Gallagher Premiership semi-finals

As the dust settles on 22 rounds of gruelling Gallagher Premiership Rugby action, a weekend full of twists, turns, and mouth-watering semi-final action is finally upon us as the country’s top four teams battle for the top prize.

Defending champions Saracens entertain Gloucester in Saturday’s early game before table-topping Exeter Chiefs host Northampton Saints later that afternoon. 

The match-up between first and fourth is a repeat of last weekend’s fixture, when the Chiefs produced a convincing second-half performance to run out 40-21 winners. 

Recently-crowned Champions Cup winners Saracens will be looking to reach the Twickenham Stadium finale for the fifth time in six years but face a dangerous Gloucester side, who have made the play-offs for the first time since 2011.
