THE PREDICTION

This may be top versus bottom but there is plenty of pride at stake here as Saracens will be eager to show that despite Exeter topping the standings, they will want show that they can still be considered the best team despite their points deduction. The two teams are however fielding second-string line-ups as they rest players ahead of their Champions Cup matches next weekend. Exeter especially have named a young team for this game while Saracens have retained the likes of Manu Vunipola and that extra experience may just tilt this match in Saracens favour here.
