Rugby News LV= Cup semi-final date and kick off time confirmed
Following the conclusion of the LV= Cup pool stages the RFU has both confirmed the semi-final line-up and the respective dates and kick off times.
As the second ranked side the Saints have earned themselves a home tie, which will be played against Saracens on Saturday, March 8th, 2014. Kick off will be at 12:30pm.
The two teams have met in plenty of semi-finals over the past five years, including the 2010 LV= Cup, 2009 Amlin Challenge Cup and both the 2010 and 2013 Aviva Premiership campaigns.
Defence coach Alan Dickens is anticipating another big contest.
“We’ve had some good battles with Saracens over the past few years,” Dickens said after last Saturday’s game. “They’ve all been pretty good games, and I'm sure the 13-and-a-half thousand who were here today will be back here in a few weeks' time.”
Ticket details will be announced in due course.
The other semi-final between Bath and Exeter Chiefs will be played at the Recreation Ground on Sunday, March 9th, with the final set for Sandy Park, Exeter, on Sunday, March 16th.
