Under-18 team named for Academies League final

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Last Tuesday's 5-0 win over Gloucester sealed the Saints' place in the Academies League final, in which they will play Southern Conference winners Exeter, who won five of their six matches and drew the other tie.

But the Saints youngsters will be in good spirits on the back of an unbeaten record which stretches back to mid-December's narrow loss to Leicester.

The two teams have virtually identical records, with the Saints having scored 188 points and 28 tries to Exeter's 180 points and 27 tries. Defensively both sides have been on good form, too, conceding a respective 66 points/nine tries and 50 points/seven tries.

So it has all the makings of a competitive game, which will round off a full day of action featuring the best eight Academy teams in the country.

Saracens play London Irish at 11am, with Bath taking on Gloucester at 1pm, Harlequins facing Leicester at 3pm and the main event between the Saints and Exeter kicking off at 5pm. Entry into Allianz Park is free all day.

Score and substitute updates will be available as they happen on the Saints' official Twitter feed.
