Some Cracking Premiership Semi-Finals In Store After An Exhilarating Day Of Rugby

After 22 rounds of Premiership rugby, we now know the four teams who will be battling it out for domestic honours. 

The main draw for Saturday was Wasps fixture with Saracens at a packed Ricoh Arena. Wasps ended up winning the match 35-15 and there was no shortage of standout performers as Danny Cipriani, Kurtley Beale, Thomas Young and Elliot Daly all impressed. As a result, Wasps have topped the table.

Saracens had a weakened side out but nevertheless, they will be disappointed with their display and they now have to be content with a third place finish.

Both Exeter Chiefs and Leicester Tigers recorded away victories which cemented their second and third place standings.

As a result, the Top four looks like this.

 

Wasps will be at home to the Tigers, while Exeter will face off against Saracens at Sandy Park.

Elsewhere, Harlequins and Northampton Saints finished 22-20 to the Saints which means that the Franklin’s Gardens outfit will enter a playoff against Connacht (most likely) for Champions Cup qualification. Quins have automatically qualified for European club rugby’s top competition.

Newcastle Falcons recorded a brilliant 39-27 over already relegated Bristol and at one stage it looked like they would finish seventh as Quins were leading the Saints at one stage.

To confirm, the semi-final pairings are as follows.

We can’t wait.
