Saracens vs Northampton Saints - 4.30pm, BT Sport 2HD

Watch live stream from 4.30pm

Round 25 concludes with a potential dress rehearsal for the last four as Saracens welcome Northampton Saints to the StoneX Stadium.

Saracens are currently on course to meet holders Harlequins in the semi-finals but all that could change in the final two weeks of the season.

Northampton could still leapfrog Quins into third while Sarries are only four points off pacesetters Leicester. 

Four-time Premiership champions Sarries are gunning for a 17th win of the campaign that would ensure a home semi-final, while visitors Northampton cannot afford any slip ups with top-four rivals Gloucester breathing down their necks. 

While Saints will be well rested after a fortnight off from action, Saracens resume domestic duties after a bruising EPCR Challenge Cup semi-final defeat to Toulon last weekend. 

The three-time Heineken Cup winners struggled to match Toulon's ferocious intensity and director of rugby Mark McCall hopes his side can take lessons from defeat as they target Premiership glory in their first season back in the top flight.

"We need to see what we can learn from it," said McCall. 

"We've got four or five weeks left of the season, and we can get something from this experience and take it into the rest of the Premiership season."
