Sarries bid to reach final by winning two-legged tie
Saracens Women know they will have to get the better of Gloucester-Hartpury if they are to reach the final of the inaugural Tyrells Premier 15s.
The north Londoners finished the regular season top of the table and, as such, will play fourth-placed Gloucester in the play-off semi-finals.
The first leg will take place on April 7 and will be hosted by Gloucester at Hartpury College, with a 4.15pm start.
The second leg will take place a week later at Sarries’ Allianz Park home, with kick-off at 6pm.
The winners of the two-legged tie will meet either Wasps or Harlequins, who meet in the other semi-final tie, in the final.
The inaugural Tyrrells Premier 15s final will be held at Trailfinders Sports Ground in Ealing on April 29 at 3pm and will be shown live on both Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports Mix.
As well as the Tyrells Premier 15s final, the day will also see the National Girls’ Under-15 and Under-18 Cup finals, which are scheduled for 11am and 12:45pm respectively.
Tickets for the day are on sale now £10 per adult, while kids under 16 go free. For more information visit EnglandRugby.com/tickets.

Clubs involved in the competition will benefit directly over the next three years from the RFU’s £2.4m investment.
Each club will be required to deliver against agreed minimum standards and provide high-quality coaching, facilities, training environments and community engagement plans.
