Owen Farrell: Saracens’ departing players not seeing Northampton semi-final as ‘the end’

“Although this is our 13th Premiership semi-final since 2010, which is a record we can be tremendously proud of, it feels like the first one,” McCall said.

“There’s that excitement around the place, that kind of anticipation and I think that’s really good.

“This feels like the first one in a while for three reasons – one, because there are people where it’s going to be the last one with us, there are people where it’s their first one for us and probably just as a result of some of the challenges and tests that we’ve been through as a group this year.”

Northampton completed a league double over Saracens this season, winning 18-12 at StoneX Stadium in December and 41-30 at Franklin’s Gardens in March.

Bath face Sale at the Rec in the other semi-final on Saturday, with the final at Twickenham on 8 June.
