Allianz Cup knockout rounds and Final date are confirmed

  • +1

Exeter Chiefs will travel to Saracens for the semi-finals of the Allianz Cup on April 13th as they look to make it a hat-trick of victories in the competition.

Winners of the first two editions of the competition, Chiefs are looking to go three from three but face a tough trip to north London.

Saracens have three league titles to their name but lost in the final of the Cup last year to Chiefs, so they will be looking for revenge in this last four encounter. They should come in with plenty of confidence, having topped Pool B with three wins and a defeat from their four games.

The winners of that game will take on West Country opposition in the final, with a derby clash between Bristol Bears and Gloucester-Hartpury completing a tantalising semi-final offering, on 14 April.

Bears finished top of Pool A, winning all their matches, including a 52-21 win away to Chiefs in their first game as they topped 50 points in every one.

The final will be played a fortnight later on Sunday 28th April.

While those four will all be hoping for silverware, the remaining five teams have plenty to play for as well.

Sale Sharks will take on Loughborough Lightning over two legs in the battle for fifth place, while Leicester Tigers, Harlequins and Trailfinders Women will all be looking to secure seventh spot.
